Watching “The Bible” on History Channel

Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.

I’m not an emt yet, but everytime I see someone do drugs, I just hope they’re smart enough to remember these points.

As an nurse with ER experience, same thing. Dear God please just tell us what you took. I will not tell anyone from law enforcement or your parents or whoever, I just need to know so I can save your life. Please.

you know doctor patient confidentiality? yeah that extends to EMT’s as well so basically unless you murdered somebody when they pick you up they aren’t going to tell the police because its not their responsibility to do that only if you turn up with giant stab wounds and full of lead will they call the police cause its obvious something serious has happened to you and not just some misguided judgements also it stops you getting the wrong treatment and possibly dying or becoming worse off in the waiting room of A&E.

Monday…study, Tuesday…study, Wednesday…study, Thursday…study, Friday…party!! JK, you’re studying everyday.

I have helped to organize and run a tiny free clinic for the last 2 years and have volunteered there for the last 5 years. Today, I’ll be attending the last clinic that I helped to organize - I am turning my role over to new leaders this month. 

This is excellent. Congratulations!
