Aaron Abbott's insight:

The operational role of a paramedic is widely diverse from treating patients indoors and outdoors, in inclement weather and all of the hazards that are associated with doing so.

This requires high speed, and highly skilled driving which brings forth its own realm of occupational health and safety.

Aaron Abbott's insight:

Arguably the most important aspect of pre-hospital care and medicine alike is health and hygiene. For a paramedic, creating a sterile workplace outside of an ambulance is a constant challenge along with maintaining hygiene at a busy scene.
