I seen the story on the news about the kid
who joined a ferternity and was
surrounded by people and no one called
the ambulance. The one ferternity member
who was interviewed talked about how he
wanted to help but of course he didn’t have
any medical training so was he over
reacting in wanting to get help he
wondered? Did he know what he was
talking about as the others suggested he
didn’t? What if he did call the ambulance
and everything was fine…what
Consequences would he face? Those are
Some of the thoughts he thought when he
was in that situation. Just yesterday I
was a situation where a woman was sick
and I had similar thoughts as the guy in the
Story? How sick is this lady? She looks very
Sick to me but what do I know? I am not a
Dr. How sick is sick enough? If I call the
Ambulance will I be in trouble for
Overreacting? Am I overreacting now?
I wasn’t sure to be honest. I asked the
Woman shouldn’t I just call 911? Isnt it
Better to solve your problem now?
(My inner hypnotist trying to help her)
I said don’t you want to feel better now?
Why don’t you just let me call the
ambulance now? That would be best
Wouldn’t it? She said no, no I just need
a glass of water please give me a few
minutes to think about it…..I went and
got help from my other co workers were
the 5 of them….it took five people to
convince her that she really did need the
ambulance. So as I had that experience
I reflected back to the guy also not
knowing should he call the ambulance?
I think you might not always know the
right answer and it’s easy to say you
Should just call but yesterday’s experience
Shows me that it took me getting many
People involved before everyone was able
to say the ambulance should be called.
Just something to think about.
