EPs Don’t Beat a Path to Tiny Hospitals — Their Loss

From Emergency Medicine News:

…this ABEM–certified physician can testify that work at TMH is incredible. You never really know whether you’ll see an MI, a pulmonary embolus, the occupants of an Amish buggy hit and disintegrated by a Ford F-250, a raging case of altitude sickness, or a hypothermic old lady with dementia wandering barefoot in the cold night. It really calls on all of your personal resources and training and your sense of adventure. Fortunately, help is often only a helicopter or fixed-wing flight away. (If the weather is good, that is.) But don’t worry! The county usually has two ambulances.
