I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
This is awesome, but I’m now kind of thinking about a Canadian woman who tried to enter the US but was denied entry because of a voluntary hospital stay for depression. That’s information boarder patrol shouldn’t have had access to but somehow did. Yes, these are different situations, but this story is still way important.
But yes, tell doctor’s the truth in an emergency because it’s important they treat you the best.
