This episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver aired last week, but I thought it was worth sharing as an irreverent but also serious aside. I am still early in my attempt to navigate the world of emergency medicine, so I am broadly exploring all sorts of topics. While my aim is to become a paramedic, I also acknowledge that taking a silo’d approach often leaves gaps that harm people. When there are serious issues with how a service gets deployed to help people, you end up with a lot of avoidable mistakes, like those highlighted in the video. I hope you had a great long weekend!
