Christine is joined by Paramedic Paul to discuss the complexities of EMS in rural Maine such as extended response times, moose strikes, survivalists, & locations that only exist on old paper hunting maps. Despite the unique environment, Christine & Paul find that the human response trauma and suffering of providers is the same no matter where you practice medicine as Paul tells the story of a tragic bear hunting accident.

Men Are Coming!

Bonus Episode! Haley from the episode “Nurse Jane” is back with a few more stories about medicine across the world. She shares the experience of working an out of hospital cardiac arrest while working as a teacher in Saudi Arabia on a student at an all women’s campus. Cardiac arrests outside the emergency department are much more chaotic, but even more so when you don’t have the proper equipment, the doctor doesn’t know CPR, and “Men are coming!”

Even when nothing goes right, a nurse will do their best for the patient.

Silent No More

We have a special guest this week, Tina, host of the popular medical true crime podcast, Good Nurse Bad Nurse!

Christine and Tina delve into the growing issue of violence against healthcare providers & discuss their own experiences as well as the horrific assaults of Army nurse, 1LT Katie Blanchard & Massachusetts Emergency Room nurse Elise Wilson.

With growing focus on violence against physicians and nurses, Christine highlights a continued lack of information about assaults on EMTs & paramedics, where violence often happens in isolated environments or even at high-speeds.

Christine chats with Eliza, an American nurse living in the United Kingdom, about the differences between US healthcare and the National Health Service. While there may not be nurse practitioners, as much gun violence, or health insurance woes the heart of nursing stays the same. However, you may want to choose your words carefully, a common term in American English just might be embarrassing British slang.
