Dedicated and focused Emergency Medical professional bringing expertise in emergent injury assessment, treatment and patient care. Excellent aptitude for building patient rapport to mitigate stress and deliver efficient treatment. Proven history of sound judgment and critical thinking in high-pressure situations. Ambitious student pursuing Paramedic degree eager to contribute developed knowledge in Paramedic role. Skilled in working under extreme pressure and still able to make sound decisions for my patients well-being and care. Adaptable and driven with strong work ethic and ability to thrive in team-based or individually motivated settings. Hardworking and reliable Advanced Emergency Medical Technician with strong ability in emergent situations and dealing with the mentally ill. Very Dependable employee who loves what I do. I take my job very serious and will take up every chance to earn additional certifications/skills, continued education, etc. In March of 2020, I was chosen out of many applicants for the opportunity to take the TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) course. I successfully attended and passed the written and physical test. I was able to earn a Tactical patch. I was also chosen to take part in SWAT training since I was able to successfully obtain TECC patch. Unfortunately, I had to turn down the offer to take this class due to a very close family member with terminal cancer. I do plan on obtaining the SWAT certification as soon as it is offered again.
As a Advanced EMT in the Medical Dept of the jail I would do medical intakes. This included taking a detailed medical hx on the pt, verify any medications with the pts pharmacy, screen for any illegal drug use to see if withdrawals may be a concern we need to address. I would take vitals to be documented which included: weight, height, bp, pulse, o2 SAT, temperature, and respirations. I would determine which pts needed to be placed on withdrawal, diabetic, HTN, or mental health checks. I worked under the supervision of the Jail Medical Doctor. I would assist him in seeing the pts weekly and take down orders from the MD. I also did the blood draws and prepped them to be sent out to the lab. Anytime we had a pt who was going through withdrawals from a serious drug, under the orders and supervision of the MD, I would start a line for fluids, monitor that pt during the tx, then dc the line. I was also the one who was able to do 12 lead ECG, so that was my responsibly also. I would respond to emergencies inside the jail or the prison, report my findings to the MD for him to decide if the pt needed further medical care. I have a very extensive background in mental health. I would visit the MAX security of the jail daily to tend to their medical needs and do a daily assessment on them. The main part of the jail housed an average of 600 inmates with one entire level dedicated to the inmates who were on MAX security. I was also responsible for keeping the medical department fully stocked at all times.
I was hired by Floyd Medical Center before I graduated EMT school as non-emergency transport. When I passed my EMT-B NREMT test I was then moved onto a BLS ambulance. While I was on the BLS truck, I had a Paramedic partner. We would pick up over flow ALS calls. I also would be responsible for very extensive documentation. After getting experience, I was then moved to a ALS truck. During my employment with FMC, most of my time was spent on the ALS truck. I was able to gain experience responding to calls in a high volume area. I have experience in transporting unstable patients to higher level of care.
