tv Reporter Deutsche Welle June 15, 2019 4:15pm-4:30pm CEST
coming up next star syria's reporter takes a look at paramedics in germany and the increasing. talk and. i. simply moved to the church i know that evil feeling that you feel when you think. your past services. are stopped coming good. rock and religion a clash that brings many parallels like. for the 2 really so irreconcilable come to the devil and love him or storage june 17th on t w.
i took a call but i think being insulted spat on or sworn at is a daily occurrence it's just part of the job from doing so from the 1st marcus miller and to be as fellow work as paramedics. the un paid off a loaf. at the workers' samaritan federation's paramedic station and often more and more of the work his are confronted with some of the experiences they being attacked on the job but their family and physically. they just keep calm we were only trying to help them. thanks it's 6 30 pm and to be as full as shift is about to begin. he's a paramedic in training a 12 hour shift lies ahead of him and he's trained in marcus miller. they've
got some pepper spray with them officially to fend off aggressive animals. for. today's saturday not a very popular shift. and had long weekends you're off my cold out more at night i do know some people like to party. and the more they drink the more they're likely to attack the 1st responders the 2 maybe get the ambulance . the paramedics always working. hard. on whatever. the radio message says a woman is lying unconscious in front of
a supermarket the paramedics rarely receive more info and thus it's not like they have a choice anyway. so. it will just take the easy chair with his her 1st lets go see . samus go wherever the needed. the patient is crouched down on the ground the man with a has clearly taken some drugs for him things aren't going fast enough to let me talk to her 1st we're going to go into the vehicle together they will have a bit more peace and quiet so we can talk to one another ok it was not alright to have a lot of questions ok. in seminars the paramedics have learned to deescalate situations withdrawing to the ambulance is a deliberate strategy. ok. ok. first we have to be able to talk with one another i'm here. you're for employ your friend is still close by but we don't have enough room to
have everybody come inside. you go in 1st but i'm almost half of all the tax and instigated by the patients themselves. down here i'd like to take a look. oh. the woman has had a slight mental breakdown and should be taken to hospital for observation. but she wants to go home. after every outing all of the vehicle surfaces have to be thoroughly disinfected medications restocked and devices checked. but to be as fuller knows only too well that a routine case can quickly get out of her and a year and a half ago he was called to the train station to check on an unconscious man when the patient came to he attacked to b.s. . when
a female colleague john i want to our backpacks between the patients legs which sent out reeling and he fell down. so then we could tie him down until the police arrived or. other medical it was. during the attack to be as father came close to pulling on the train tracks he only realised later how close it come to dying. 3 quarters of a year later all of these images resurfaced and i was off work for 5 weeks for a while. and when i'd come out is that i couldn't sleep anymore and when i did these images kept coming back. at the time psychotherapeutic treatments and counseling helped him deal with his crisis his colleagues also supported him.
marcus miller believes the turks are more common now because people's expectations have changed along the water were they call emergency services and have to do what we need them to do but when things aren't done according to their wishes we don't do what they want then that can turn into violence or aggression pretty quickly. along with you on. the next. morning we're going to show parts approach from the light trouser where the police are in operation. usually emergency services and the police are informed at the same time today the police are already on the scene. we know that a police operation is underway and that they've tasered the delinquents. taser is an electro shock weapon used to incapacitate people its use hasn't been approved
in germany but in often but it's currently being tested in a pilot project. relax the operation is larger than expected 6 policeman to deal with one man on drugs i fell from the balcony 1st or 2nd floor 1st he has injuries probably from glass he jumped is he bleeding heavily. is anything squirting out or running down but requires a q. treatment. the man was throwing furniture out of the window when the police arrived he jumped out himself the paramedics suspect he's taken ecstasy ok. the fire department. have come to provide additional support drugs at the moment he's still extremely aggressive the police have handcuffed him for he was so aggressive that the police officers had to use a taser to be able to overpower him. because we can't and aren't allowed to act
like that because he's being cuffed so the police have to be present moment the political. target of the and i would later firefighters have them and strapped onto a stretcher i think. and they were all good. by. the paramedics can't give them a sedative to calm him down because they don't know what drugs he's taken yes. for are you ok are you in paid. off he has handcuffs behind his back our watch out. you have a little bit of the patient won't stop spitting at the 1st responders so he's given a face mask if you're a boy just keep calm and everything's ok we're only trying to help you everything's fine no one wants to do anything to you. go well you know i come through here
a lot of water you get up. i go back. they drive to the emergency room with a police escort. ok. you know without their lease escort marcus miller would be alone with this patient. yeah maybe i'm good. but nearly. at the hospital they're also getting ready to receive him down because you have a lot of show up it's at the back of your mind that it could happen again at about 1030 that's our patient could have really flipped out at any time and we simply couldn't have restrained him. by the bed just because. your mom if you have. the budget just to get them can call. for a lot of the real evidence here on. this stuff. before but as
time they reach the hospital a total of 21st responders have already dealt with this patient. colleagues from the paramedic station have also just completed their mission they were dealing with a man hit attacked his wife finishes going to something i'm not so angry about i had bought from. the police were also involved. and intended they took the man with them right away because they were still 4 children at a time. everybody i made name tax i don't make statements. like that were not the 10 hours on duty it's time for a coffee break for our a 3 long with nothing in his private life marcus miller practices martial arts. his colleagues jokingly asked why he didn't give the man a karate chop not a bit no he would have just got more aggressive it would have done any good so he's
taken too many drugs but in my more than 20 years as a paramedic i've never seen someone take so much stuff without batting an eye because these guns and charts have to live so now imagine you have someone like that standing in front of you. don't do anything just run. whole. resorting to violence is not an alternative with the bad it's not our job that's what the police are there is autistic and that's why my colleagues put up with quite a lot before they call the police or before they defend themselves. because our workers inhibitions threshold is quite high when we go out of doctors there who was . once again time is of the essence. an older woman is in danger of suffocating.
they give her an infusion oxygen and take her blood pressure it's all routine for to be. here the relatives even want to help. because if you. show you. don't be alarmed it goes back quite a bit. then i can place the entire weight on my shoulder or maybe you know no you don't carry anything i mean it nicely but you can help us. put to be as being able to help these people helps him get through a night like this. as i've been mentioned just about helping people in whatever emergency situation they happen to find themselves simply helping them to get out of it sometimes people just need someone to listen to them and i'm incredibly thankful to be able to do that to be able to do this job.
