A little bit of ems humor

I overheard this a few days back, as a student talked to the paramedic she was doing ride outs with,

“I can’t wait until I have my first full arrest and bring them back, you know a real save.”
The paramedic looks over and straight into the students eyes and says, “You know saving a life isn’t just CPR, IVs and intubations, sometimes we save a person’s life just by taking them out of a bad nursing home.”

A decade of emergency work teaches you things.
