Uncertain on how to vote here, on one hand that sucks, but then again it is a job you trained for. Actually, I made up my mind. You became a health care provider by choice, and by obviously knowing it wasn't all going to be sunshine, rainbows, and unicorn farts.

No, most big people actually tend to have better hygiene habits than skinny people because they know they have to do more to try to prevent body odor.

Electric you seem like an intelligent enough person... So even you have to admit that him or her ( never even heard of the doc till they commented ) getting people to apologize over the web is no small feat. With that being said I agree with you as well... People take this whole Internet stuff to serious, but sadly it's an electronic world now ... I don't see it getting better anytime soon.

I agree, the OP wanted to do that for a career and thats part of the job. She may not like it, but sadly she has to put up with it. Healthcare fields are not glamorous at time.

Well, I dunno, there certainly is the potential for op to experience unicorn farts. I mean, they'll be unicorn fart's twice removed, ugly cousin- rhino farts, but they're still farts :/

That's what I was thinking. My sister trained for this too. her first job is at a nursing home. guess what? she gets paid. And that patient paid you OP so get over yourself. You knew this shit was coming when you signed on for the job. Quit bitching and maybe start thinking of how it made that patient who is paying YOU feel. because in this case, SHE is your customer. suck it up

maybe you will be bothered when your responding to a dead body of a child that was just thrown from a vehicle for not being restrained properly in their car seat..welcome to being an EMT.

Sorry but I would rather have the op's job over being an EMT anyday. EMTs see some horrible things not to mention they have the 2nd highest suicide rate out of any job.

The two above me are correct. I don't think you fully realize what you're getting into. People will probably puke on you, dead people often void their bowels, decomp smells and looks horrendous. Then the emotional part of having to see a person, possibly a child laying there either dead or close to it. I know a few EMTs all of them regularly go to therapy due to something they've had to witness.

As an emt you will also have to actually see much worse than docs and nurses at the er. Let alone a doctor in his office. You will have to bring them back to life, stabalize, and clean them up for the doctors so they will know what they are looking at. How can you be almost an emt and not realize this

Depends on the type of doctor you're talking about. The EMTs bundle patients up for me. I'm the one who then taken the patient to surgery to fix all the holes inside. Oh and Jalupe, you sound like an immature little dick. Get the fuck over yourself.

Jalupe has obviously done minimal training if he thinks that being an EMT is chilled, but I don't think a lot of the rest of you know what you are talking about either, regarding the work of an EMT being more stressed than that of a doctor, I think it depends on what kind of work you are doing and where you are doing it I work in small ERs in very poor communities in Cape Town, and most of my more hectic patients come off the street - often pushed in on wheelbarrows, bleeding from numerous sites, having been hit by cars, assaulted, or shot or stabbed, and either dead or close to it, I am thus the one who has to resuscitate them, not EMTs - I have seen a lot, and had to work through a lot (the worst was my 4 months of paediatrics, and having to resuscitate one HIV+ and grossly malnourished child after another, but ultimately losing the battle with most of them, and paediatric rape and abuse cases, and, paediatric trauma in general :(

I will never understand the profession of Doctor. They get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to someone to get everyone healthy, but at the same time if they did end up making everyone healthy they would be out of a job.

I didn't say they did, that was my point. They don't make everyone permanently healthy, but that's what they get paid to attempt to do. Yet if they accomplished their goal they would be out a job.

They get paid to help people when ill, but theres always job security because illness will always be around and theres always the large portion of people that dont consider their health until it involves the emergency room

I understand what you mean, 14. The same goes for really any service job. Law enforcement strive to end crime, but without it they have no job... firefighters stop fires, but without them they have no job... mods strive to keep out trolls and illiterates, but... etc. etc.
