Scenario questions like. If you were in a situation where a coworker was doing something illegal or against company policy, what would you do?

2 Answers

Ensure that there is no immediate safety concerns, then neutralize the situation as professionally as possible. Maybe by convincing the coworker that it wouldn't be the smartest thing to do. Then report the problem to an immediate supervisor as soon as possible. Less

It follows that safety concerns are the first thing out of my mouth here. I experienced partners doing things which were not dangerous-yet were against policy... If you allow them to "get away with it," your own integrity will be ruined and you will not be regarded for promotions. Your answer should include telling the immediate supervisor. Less

EMT-Basic was asked...September 23, 2013

Most difficult questions were regarding step by step use of specific equipment. For instance, how to set up and administer a nebulizer. Dosage, etc. How would I handle a patient in a nursing home on a BLS transport that was unconscious if the nurse was not in the room and my partner was also an EMT and the patient had obviously fallen from her bed.

1 Answers

Be sure you are confident in your response, aware of how far the nearest hospital is and what level of care it is. Be sure your are considering the patient first, not what your equipment says and DO NOT work outside your scope, but transport may be quicker than waiting for an ALS crew. Gather as much information as possible while using spinal protocol 100% O2 and a BVM if your patient is not breathing, but CHECK for breathing..... Less

No real curve balls during the interview. Very to the point and efficient.

2 Answers

You must have been a terrible employee at one of the easiest and highest paying jobs with the best benefits I have ever had. If you got screwed over as an EMT it was most likely because you screwed yourself over by being lazy or unprofessional. I was an EMT for 3 years, always felt respected, valued and I received multiple raises in my time working there. Less

They should have told you that they like to screw EMTs up their butts.

what things do you need to look for while inserting an artificial airway

2 Answers

Make sure you have the correct airway and that it's indicated for the patient. Also, make sure the patient is unresponsive if you're inserting an OPA. While inserting, immediately pull out if you feel resistance, or if the patient doesn't take the airway (gags) Less
