On Dead Ears as One Dies: The Recording in real life.
On Dead Ears as One Dies:
An emergency tape released.
by Mark William Darus.
911 operator borderline begs the caller, a Nurse, to do something, anything to aide a collapsed 87 year old woman who dies.
At the time of occurrence, there was no mention of a DNR ( Do Not Resuscitate order ).
I am thankful this blog is being read by many Countries across our shrinking planet. Each of your countries, I am most sure, have different views of human life than apparently we do in the United States in regards to keeping our jobs.
I have written about professional medical psychopathic processes in this blog. http://psychopathyanotherlife.blogspot.com/2012/05/medical-professional-nonviolent.html I can find no better example to prove this point than this event.
Hey, Earth: Take a great look at us! America will help every country on this planet as a result of earthquakes, floods and any other huge disaster. Yet how do you view us when we fail to help our own because of fear of Insurance companies and lawsuits?
Having been a dispatcher for over 7 years some time ago, I can totally imagine the frustration the 911 operator felt. She gave every possible out for this nurse, a highly trained life saving professional, to take grasp of to save this woman. All her efforts, extending an olive branch of hope hitting that of an instantaneous Ice Age when received.
My thoughts to this amazing 911 Operator: You did the best you could. KNOW THAT!!! I hope your coming nightmares don't plague you, haunt you and further hope your coworkers did as mine did when our attempts crashed against legal barriers. You did the same as I would have have, except I think I would have been more profane toward the end of that call. 911 Operator: I bow my head and raise my glass to you. You are a credit to your profession in all respects! Never doubt yourself in the slightest.
"I don't understand why you are not willing to help this patient?" she asked...
Why is it I find more reasons reasons to question the merits of my homeland? Is it because of legal fear that inhibits some of us from doing the right thing? (i say again: There was NO mention of a DNR during this tape.) Is it because American Corporate policy has become so much a part of our unwritten National Constitution that we simply fall like lemmings for its Handbooks and Guidelines?
I vividly remember the stories my Grandfather and father told me about the United States, their pride, their beliefs, (though my grandfather knew in the 1970's the Japanese would be the long-time victor of WWII as the bombings Hiroshima and Nagasaki just lead to a battles end.) They both felt a strong sense of union with this place, their homeland and their place in it.
I don't possibly think my thoughts right now could be further than theirs was back when about America. I have a strong sense of my dead grandparents and mother and father. When I close my eyes, thinking of them in reference to how this country is turning inward, reaching critical mass, imploding, I think they are praying for my sisters and I. I think they are sending us their strength of conviction. I also think they are crying...
Authors Note: I may lack the feelings most of you have and carry with you each and everyday of your lives. I may look at school shootings, restaurant slayings, front porch killings and not feel a tug of anything except the desire to write about it and express what I sense about it. This lack of emotion does not mean I do not have an opinion about the world I live in and my tiny hunk of it. I see things differently than you do. I think this is the very thing that would prevent me from doing something so totally wrong as letting someone die as a result of a 'Policy'. Even with such a policy, I would find some fuckin' grey area to circumnavigate it and save someone as well as my own ass.
I was born a son of America.
It doesn't mean I will die one of it.
Other countries have revolutions and have survived much longer than us. We had one civil war. What did that serve? We kept the Union and freed the blacks. Big deal on the black part, ever see the movie Mississippi Burning? What will it take for us to wake up?
And while I'm asking questions...
Why did that nurse even bother to call Emergency Rescue in the first place when her companies intentions was to sit back and do nothing?
