at the workers' samaritan federation's paramedic station and often back more and more of the workers are confronted with similar experiences to being attacked on the job but very badly and physically. ok just keep calm we were only trying to help you avoid them. at 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 his trainer marcus miller. they've got some pepper spray with them officially to fend off aggressive animals. like today is saturday night a very popular shift of the modern and of have long on weekends or off my cold out
more nights. i don't 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 where. the paramedics always working pez. whatever. the radio message says a woman is lying unconscious in front of a supermarket the paramedics rarely receive more info than that it's not like they have a choice anyway. it was just too easy cheap it was a fast let's go see. them as go where ever 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 that's enough of let me talk to a 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's not all right to go under question ok go in seminars the paramedics have learned to deescalate situations withdrawing to the ambulance is a deliberate strategy. ok. ok. since the 1st we have to be able to talk with one another i'm here. you have on 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. at this 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 hear tech to b.s. . when a female colleague just i want to our backpacks between the patients legs which sent reeling and he fell down. so then we could tie him down until the police arrived for. me to pull it off. 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 before as. well had gone 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 work 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 and 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 know 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. really 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. there's 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 or would most people that i was. driving. to and i would later firefighters have them and strapped onto a stretcher i would say. 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. or no are you ok are you in paid. for has hand come back 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 young 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. know when you know if i come through here a lot of water you get up. i go. they drive to the emergency room with a police escort. ok. you know without their
lease escort marcus miller would be alone with his patients. yeah if you are bored. by your leave. at the hospital they're also getting ready to receive him got to talk to you have a lot of it sure hope it's at the back of your mind that it could happen again at about 1030 you know it's a patient could have really flipped out at any time and we simply couldn't have restrained him when he done i thought my goodness because. your mom if you know. the charges 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 paramedics station have also just completed their mission they were dealing with a man who'd attacked his wife but it is going to something i'm not so angry about i had bought. the police were also involved.
and intended they took the man with them right away because they were still 4 children at a time. of the year i might name tax take me home explain to my daughter that we're not the 10 hours on duty it's time for a coffee break the. law or it's very 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 chops 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 are guns and if they do so now imagine you have someone like that standing in front of you. i don't do anything just run. with the hope.
of 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 or with me because our workers inhibitions threshold is quite high when we go out of doctors there who was. on 1st and then. 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 you. know you. don't be alarmed it goes back quite
a bit. then i can place the entire weight on my shoulder ok 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 mentioning 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. 7 o'clock in the morning and the end of the shift. they've been spat has sworn us and insulted get the. and 12 shots.
