Ever wonder what it’s like to be part of a trauma team?
Well here you have it!
This was my first job out of nursing school
It truly is like a scene from mash
When you approach that helipad to receive the patient
Your hair is blowing
Your heart is beating out of your chest
Because you never really know what’s coming out of that helicopter for you
Well .. You do..
But.. You don’t..
I mean, at the end of the day it’s someone’s son, daughter, mother, father, sister, brother and so on..
Caring for that life is just as important as holding together those that are at the bedside hanging onto every minute.. every movement..
Here is a pic I snapped of the the state police about to depart from the helipad on my way out today
Even tho I’ve since moved on to a different kind of adrenaline rush these days
Don’t think for a second this scene didn’t bring me right back
