So, What Would You Do? Hooked, Line, and Sinker

On Wednesday, I put up a video scenario and invited you to consider what you would do.  I have to admit, this injury makes my skin crawl just a little.  Taking a fishhook anywhere is terrible; taking one through the upper lip is just not fair.  Ughhh...

“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – Hooked, Line, and Sinker

The New Year is customarily the time of year in which people make resolutions for self-improvement.  One of mine was to blog more regularly.  What I did not count on, however, was how busy January would be.  I spent 10 days in Florida teaching a WFR course, came home for a week, then headed out …

“What Would You Do?” Wednesday – Something Completely Different.

We've been having a good run of #wwydwednesdays lately, but I've noticed a pattern.  The past two have been significant blunt-force trauma.  We had a rappel fall/failure, followed by a patient that was kicked by a horse.  Both were good learning experiences, but it's time to get away from trauma and try something new.  With …
