We have some very good local blogs, one of the best is Rescuing Providence. Michael Morse, in his 34 hour day somehow manages to work the rescue and write about it too.
Where my mission is to keep people from needing emergency services through preventive care, Providence Rescue is there when prevention fails. I have called them to homes many times. They’re my CYA. ‘If you get chest pain, shortness of breath, or feel really awful, call 911’, I say to my patients, after I’ve done all I could.
A perk of this kind of work, providing health care in the community, is driving around our lovely city, seeing things and talking to people. It’s never dull, often nerve-racking, keeps us busy.
