... Let me let you in on one of Pedro's numero uno rules of EMS survival-
I am more important than you, more important than the patient or the patients family. I am the most important person involved.
My family depends on me, my family is more important than you, more important than your family, more important than the patient.
I will not allow you, your actions or inactions to endanger me while I attempt to perform my job.
Don't think I don't care- I do, way too much- but you are not going to keep me from going home in one piece. Never.
Adios and Love,
Pedro the Paramedic
