Texas Peace Officer, EMT San Antonio Police Department San Anotnio, Texas
Description: You're dispatched to a residence for a fall, no lights or sirens. You don't recognize the address but you know the neighborhood well. The pager and MDT report the patient is a 28 year old female. You look in the comments and see the call terminated before MPDS was completed. You arrive on scene to find a single patient who states she, "fell in the shower", "tripped at the top of the stairs", or "fell into the door knob."
Abuse and neglect are often hard to spot. Whether or not you recognize the real issues and how you respond could make all the difference.
