your friends and neighbors are lucky to have you and your talents nearby. "be prepared"  can make a huge diiference.  There are stop the bleed videos on line for anyone interested, and the training by local trauma hospitals is usually free.  when and how to use stuff.  It has become of active shooter training.  also not bad for people using high powered equip with sharp pointy deals on them ect.  Most gains in use and knowledge come from our military.

Around here the hospitals don't provide any of that training for the public beyond whatever the politicians are pushing for like the recent Narcan craze, just as continuing education, which I could probably sneak into anyway, but haven't. We are a bit behind many other states. When I took active shooter, it was in the early stages and focused on not getting shot, which I also found to be important. :)  They developed an EMS component later and I was invited to participate in a statewide course, but I could not get the weekend off or get the travel money. My department thought I was taking 'too much training'. (Can't make this stuff up.)
 My neighbors get what they get and I do what I can when called. I do not go looking for calls, for sure, had enough of that. But 'stuff' seems to find me, mostly at work, with the standard aging population demographics, and I would hate to be caught short in a serious situation. That happened once, in a Scout camp, and I vowed to never let it happen again.

If we have a FF get together, I can bring materials and train a dozen people in an hour.  Interested folks can watch videos but to be certified, you need and instructor.  That only matters if the cert is required by your job.  In BSA I have taught it and the kids enjoy getting a piece of paper.  You local hospital might start training if interest is shown, check with their education department.  You will want others around you to be trained for when something happens to you.  That is the joke at boy scout events.  all others are in good shape but what happens if I keel over.  Because of IEDs, troops on patrol would carry the tourniquets already loose around each thigh.  bomb goes off, you can tighten the tourniquet around your leg yourself.

For a while the army was experimenting with BDU's that had t'quits sewn in at the 'right places'. Never heard how that turned out.
 Frankly Doc, I have had and given so much training over the years that I am ready to put it behind me. Knowledge is power, of course, but I am not 'in the business' anymore, so how much I want to stay current is a really good question. I am not sure, but I think my instructors certification with ASHI has or will soon expire. I was certified to tech all the wilderness courses and up to Certified First Responder. I also had an AHA and NSC cert for CPR/ First Aid instructor at some point and of course, I still have my Pro-Board cert as a Fire Service instructor 2, which is national, but of course I still need the individual 'Authorization to teach' in our state for each class.  Yeah, It is the time in my life when I take care of things at home and do some things for myself for a change. I encourage others to get out there and do their part of course, but I just handle whatever falls in my lap (just did some wound care yesterday for a fella, ugly cut). Now I am more of a 'Be Prepared' guy and much less of a 'First on scene' guy. I just do two laid back music events a year and that is about it. The rest are 'walk-ins'.:)
 However, for folks who have never had it, I strongly suggest good training from a good instructor and having a few of the important correct tools for the job.

So we save time and money so we can spend it with our friends and family.  Last day as medical director at the pediatric emergency department at The Wesley Children's Hospital.  You don't always make friends like this at work.  They threw a party, and we are all going to "brunch" in the am".  Shift starts at noon so cannot do breakfast or lunch!




 


yep beard is gone, and yes I think the one in the middle is poss. being inappropriate!!! not really.

I don't see anything inappropriate. Did you drop your trauma shears, or were you just happy to see somebody? You're a good man Doc. I used to be one too, so I should know. :D

amen brother.  good times. And yes my trauma shears fell out of my side leg pocket.   Of course these young ladies are more like daughters than anything.  Many of them started doing peds because I asked them to.  great nurses and a child life specialist in there too. And a good time was had by all!!! God Bless America.

Trapper, I will be taking the reins in my town at the regional hospital as ED medical director.  3 min. drive vs 50 minute one way.  I have worked here for 12 years in the past so like a home coming, but leaving my Work family of 4.5 years at the Children's Hospital.  had a going away brunch today and they had a plaque made.  I usually make the plaques!!!




 


I am the old guy in the middle.  Thanks for asking.  This may be my retirement job. Thanks for asking

Doc, you are much to young to retire! I didn't get to retire until I was 59! I was no doctor but some of my mail at work (Army Research Lab) came with PHD behind my name, I figured it stood for "pretty heavy dude".

You are right, most of us do not retire, but slow down a bit.  If I can get some good people and get our local hospital running on all 128 cylinders (complicated)  Then it will be a little like partial retirement.

Thought I would mention.  I usually shower in the am.  Sorry for TMI, and if that conjures a visual, my apologies.  But in the eve. if I am tired and dirty, I have been known to take a bath and soak and relax.  I put some lavender milk bath that my wife makes and take a chill pill (beer).  When I am done, I leave the water till am to let it dissipate the heat and humidity.  We have already paid for the heat and need the humidity in the winter.  If you have ever boiled 30 gallons of water, it takes a lot of energy.

I spent my time and energy training up a good crew at the children's hospital.  Here is my payment.  I have a stainless steel plaque hanging on my honor wall with my dad and my great uncle, reminding me what all the nurses at my previous institution think of me.  about 30 notes and signatures on the back.  My kids can read them like a time capsule when I am gone.  They will help scores of kids for another generation.  God Bless America!

Hey Doc,
I just ran across this thread, probably due to the recent post, and I really enjoyed the read.  Very nice to learn a little more about Bryan than is gained from the normal threads and our brief meeting in Rentz.  Thanks for sharing!!!!

I do wonder how some of you guys find the time to get around to all the areas of this forum.  You must have a system for that too in order to save time.

Keeping up can be rough, but I use the little link in the upper left corner on the main pages "read most recent posts". It lets me skim or read across all the threads and focus in on what takes my interest. Otherwise, you have to do a lot of clicking.
