Another example how we are RT enablers

So, I said to the nurse, "Is he short of breath?"

She said, "No, uh, I just thought he could use a treatment. I think you should at least put him on top of your list of priorities."

"Um," I said, "Should I put him before the ambulance that's coming in with a patient who's not breathing."

"Well, can you asses him real quick?

I did. The patient was not short of breath. Why would I need to go back there and do a bronchodilator treatment? This is a perfect example of how I'm an enabler. I ended up giving the treatment and bit my tongue in the process.

I did it and then I went down to meet the ambulance.
