Hi All, I haven't been here in a while since I have been working a lot and do not feel much like internet chat by the time I am home. I have the day off, however!! Well, here is my question: I love my job, however, the training is really slow and not really organized as training at all. It has been almost three months and I still do not know some ambulance-specific, basic things such as setting up IVs for the medics and my radio reports and radio skills in general, well, they suck. And I just find out that some people have an issue with my driving - I am not very smooth. I have never driven a diesel (with the exception of occasionally picking up the rescue for our volunteer calls in my town) and my acceleration and deceleration is jerky. I do not drive my vehicle this way. What I really want is to work out these bugs. I haven't even begun to focus on patient care (although I get to tech some small, inconsequential calls) since everything is all over the place. There is no program in place and I'm partnered with so many different people that I never get training. When this nightmare is over and I have been there for a long time, I am determined to set up a training program with objectives and completion dates for new hires!! But in the mean time, any suggestions? I especially need help with my driving. I seem to have difficulty multitasking when operating the vehicle. When I started, I was just handed the keys (basically) and was driving right off the bat. I need to figure out how to drive this beast without throwing the tech and the patient around when driving code. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
