One of my coworkers caused the death of a patient. In layman’s terms, my coworker killed someone. There really isn’t much to discuss, or wiggle-room, or room for doubt.
That’s what happens when you act arrogant and talk a big game around veteran EMTs and Paramedics – your actions are scrutinized just a little bit more.
And it doesn’t help that my coworker doesn’t understand what she did wrong. She tries to defend it, when her actions scream negligence.
We’ve all seen the EKG. We’ve heard the report. We’ve heard the excuses. We know what happened.
A person is dead now because of the negligence of one of my coworkers. Sure, the patient may have died anyways, but my coworker assured that the patient would die.
And that lady still has a job.
And she won’t be fired.
Because she shows up to work on time.
I can’t respect management that allows that to happen.
I won’t respect management.
They are unconscionable.
