  • I again worked three shifts this week.  MTW from 10-6.  the tigbur shift.

     

    It was a bit of a boring week as there were no trauma calls.  Trauma calls are both the most exciting and most hands on.  One funny call was an elderly man who was CVA- stroke and he kept going in and out of consciousness.  We had to keep AVPUing him-making sure he stayed awake and alert for the entire ride.  He kept checking his pockets and cursing that he forgot his vodka.  He a...

  • So this past weekend about 14 of us decided to take a little vacation to Eilat (being an emt in israel does not always feel like a vacation).  So my danny alon and david took a 6:30am bus to eilat.  It took about 5 hours but we slept for most of it.  My knees were a bit raw after having them in the chair back the entire time.  When we got there, we walked for about 20 minutes to find our hostel.  It was actually very nice and quite cheap only $32 per night.  We went ...

  • I signed up to work three shifts this week, MTW from 10-6.  I particularly likethis shift due to the timing and the drivers who work it.  This week did not have a exciting calls as the prior week even though the amount of calls was greater.  We mainly were used as a glorified taxi service taking people from their homes to the hospital for mild medical problems.  It would be cheaper for them to call a taxi.  One thing that is different here than in the states is that when ...

  • Unfortunately, I am only working two shifts this week, I think 5-6 the following weeks.  Today I had the 10-6 shift with another girl from our group.  When we got to the station, we were paired with Amos the Nahag (Driver).  Nahags are always the most senior member of the group.  It was Amos, Isabel, an Israeli volunteer, and me on the rig.  Due to my experiences of being an EMT in the states I was put as second in charge and got to ride in the front seat.  Amos basi...

  • So last Thursday night was Lyla Lavan.  It literally means white night and is a celebration of Tel Aviv becoming a world heritage site in 2003.  They call it white night because the city does not get dark-all the stores,restaurants, and bars stay open until sunrise.  At around 8 o'clock our group of 15 living in beit leni (guest house in Tel Aviv) met up with about 20 other kids from our program who were at a friend's nearby apartment.  We celebrated at the apt, and then at ar...

  • Well, Sorry this is a delayed post, but our living accomodations in Jerusalem for the training course did not have the best internet service.  We stayed in the Beit Yehuda Guest house which is in Malcha, a suburb of Jerusalem.  

     

    When I landed in TLV and picked up my laggage from the baggage claim, I had to make my way up to Jerusalem.  After reading some directions on the internet, I thought that a train would be the best and cheapest way of getting there.  There was ...
