Paramedics were called out again this afternoon. Not great.
While here, they told me about the headway they’ve been making in getting our little rural hospital to give me regular, preemptive special IV therapy.
The idea being that this IV therapy would hopefully reduce the amount of times I need emergency calls to ambulance services, helping me to not get as severely sick as regularly as I am at the moment and not clog up their services when someone else could be doing it. It’s not a perfect system but it’s better than anything we’ve got going now.
We’ve been trying to get doctors and community nurses to make this happen for a long time now, without any luck.
So one of our amazing paramedics decided to march up to the community nurses and the hospital and see what they could do to get it happening for me.
And today, one of these amazing paramedics said he’d convinced the hospital and nurses to give it a try and see if it helps — probably just over summer, as that’s when I tend to need this treatment the most.
It just blows my mind when I see someone go above and beyond, to help others.
Thank you Mr. Paramedic. You rock.
