Today I attended my first Emergency Medical Team meeting. I didn't really know what to expect. I still am not really sure what to expect. It's intentions is to be similar to a code team. We respond to all medical emergencies and are involved in the the  fire drills. All of this sounds fine, but as we were in our meeting I realized wow, we live in a hospital. Every time there is an emergency a mess of people will respond. This is good and bad. It is very hard to function in an emergent situation with too many people involved. There may be 4 anethesists, 5 surgeons, and up to 50 nurses. Oh my. So for now, I will pray there are no emergent situations and if there is one, I will do my best to fulfill my duties as a part of the EMT. I will also try to remember the famous first line of many medical schools "First do no harm".
