The following are common lies told by patients to the paramedics who are treating them and trying to save their lives in an emergency. Paramedic are not the police, we really don’t care what drugs you have taken, or how stupidly fast you were trying to drive, we just want to know your mechanism of injury so that we can treat you appropriately.
- I’m not allergic to anything
- I’ve got no previous medical history
- I was unable to make an appointment with my doctor
- The pain is 10 out of 10
- I can’t walk
- I have pain in my neck
- My GP told me to call an Ambulance
