Texas paramedic looks back on 41 years in EMS -

Monday, June 19, 2017

You have to master the curriculum," Gandy says. "You have to know the information backwards and forwards, in much greater depth than you thought you’d ever need as an EMS provider. That means you have to do an awful lot of supplemental reading."If you use one textbook to teach from, I don’t care how good it is, it’s still just one book. If you said you were going to get through medical school or even nursing school with one textbook, people would laugh at you, yet that’s how we teach our EMTs, AEMTs and paramedics."A good instructor has to go way above that. You need to look at the educational standards and make yourself an expert on every single point. Then you have to practice teaching. Hook onto somebody who can be a mentor who’ll let you break in gradually."From litigator to educatorIn 1981, Gandy became a paramedic – the only one in Honey Grove – and continued to volunteer. "I was basically on call all the time," he says. As EMS occupied more and more of his life, Gandy knew he was headed for a career change."I decided to become a full-time medic in 1989," he recalls. "I’d been very involved in EMS at the state level: writing regulations and exam questions, serving on the Governor’s committee – things like that."I just didn’t like practicing law anymore. It’s a high-stress business. I was fortunate to have done well enough not to have to worry about income so I figured, what the hell, I’m going to do what I like to do."Gandy didn’t have to wait long for the right EMS opportunity. "I got a call that same year from the regional guy in the state EMS office. He said Tyler (Junior College) was looking to start a two-year paramedic program, and thought I ought to apply."Well, they picked me, and we built that program into something quite successful. The school still offers an Associate’s Degree in Emergency Medical Services Professions. I stayed there until I retired in 2004 and moved to Tucson (Arizona)."Gandy says law school and his 25 years as an attorney taught him much more than the law. "You learn to think critically; how to gather and cull facts, then decide what’s important and what isn’t."One thing that seems to be a problem for EMS people is the difference between a fact and a conclusion. When you read most patient-care reports, they’re filled with unsupportable conclusions. For example, ‘Patient is A&Ox4.’ Well, that means they’re awake and alert to time, place, person and event, but how did you determine that? Lots of times, t
