*As we drop off our patient and gives report to the staff, I start cleaning everything, doing a wipedown of the stretcher and everything we touched, putting on a fresh sheet and sanitizing the equipment before coiling it up and putting everything in its place. I move the stretcher and equipment to an out of the way stretch of hall and walk back towards my partner, standing nearby*

"County Hospital this is Medic 2, how do you copy."
"Medic 2 this is County, we copy go ahead"

"County we're on scene with a male approximate age is 20, found to be acting violently. Police were involved, patient was tazed and continued to be combative. Vitals are as follows; pulse is 176, blood pressure is 196 over 108, and respirations are 26. Patient is warm to the touch and diaphoretic. We are about 5 minutes out. Anything further?"

"Negative Medic 2, we will see you on arrival."

*As our patient begins to slowly come down we move the patient onto the stretcher, securing his limbs and the straps for the stretcher should sedation prove not sufficient. My partner goes to start an IV while I get a 12 lead started for cardiac monitoring. We move the patient into the ambulance and my partner climbs into the back with him.*

 

'Would one of you mind accompanying us?' 

 

*As one of the officers agrees I head up front, heading towards the hospital.*

*I look at my partner as she begins to prep for an IV and our patient begins to resist us more vigorously, no longer stunned by the electricity from the tazer.* 

 

'I believe we are out of time for that. Would you please prepare an intramuscular dose of versed please.'

 

*I shift to where I have most of my upper body above the patient and begin with holding his head and shoulders down so he is unable to injure himself.* 

 

'Officers, if you would help me hold him down long enough for my partner to administer sedation?'
