Fury Pilot: Are 911 operators incapable of determining whether an ambulance needs to be sent out or not?

In Australia, emergency services operators are trained to be able to make these determinations and advise callers on the appropriate course of action. This includes non-life threatening events, like severing a finger.


FWIW I've actually had to call 000 in Australia, and after I provided the relevant injury details they simply asked *me* whether they needed to send an ambulance or not.

/they're very unpleasant

When I was 5, I almost severed the entire first joint of my pink finger doing some really poorly planned arts and crafts at kindergarten. Did they panic the fark out and call 911? No. They got applied first aid, got the nurse to stabilize it a bit, and had my parents come pick me up to get me to a doctor. was fine, although I have a bit of a frankenstein pinky now. Calling an ambulance just because a kid loses a bit of skin off the very tip of a finger, not even anywhere near the bone or joint, would be wildly irresponsible.

her parents were called to take her to the hospital. Had they not been able to reach Amazing's parents or if it were a life-threatening incident, 911 would have been called

OK then.

/also, Amazing Johnson is a great name for a gay pr0nstar

Curious: ReapTheChaos: Losing the tip of a finger is not life threatening, as long as it's put on ice you have hours to get it reattached.  From the article it's hard to say how much was cut off. If it wasn't down to the bone it will grow back eventually anyway.

mind if we cut the end of yours off as a test? if it grows back i'll apologize for what i'm thinking right now.

of course if you have some pig bladder  cells around all bets are off.


I've actually done it a few times in my life, luckily never lost any actual bone, and it grew back just fine. You can't be a machinist for over 20 years and not take a little damage to your fingers.

My kid goes to this school district. I am a registered nurse. Calling 911 for such a minor injury would have been misuse of the emergency system. The nurse is trained to recognize life-threatening injuries. If this had happened to my child at home I would not have called 911. I would have been pissed if they called it from the school because I don't want the >$1000 bill the ambulance would charge me, and I wouldn't a 'bus tied up for a true emergency. This sounds like somebody just wants to get paid. School acted appropriately.

Parthenogenetic: hardinparamedic: You have four hours, from the point the finger is detached, to get that child to a micro-vascular surgeon capable of performing re-implantation surgery. The loss of a finger, or part of a digit, is a time-critical emergency from which delaying can result in substantial life-long disability and cost to that child and his/her parents in rehabilitation and lost ability to perform a job later in life. This is a situation which would have been ideal for EMS intervention.

In reality, this child, barring a hospital being overloaded with critical patients, would be taken back immediately, and either assessed by surgery, or shipped by ground or air to a facility which has a microvascular team, if the digit was still viable.

So yeah. This was an emergency, just as much so as a guy in shock would be. First Aid doesn't qualify you to make a decision on whether or not the finger was viable, and every rational first aid instructor would tell you to call 911 in that instance.

First of all, the Debbie Downer part from the article:   "In a prepared statement, Dickinson I.S.D. confirms Amazing lost the tip of her finger and that her parents were called to take her to the hospital. Had they not been able to reach Amazing's parents or if it were a life-threatening incident, 911 would have been called."

It doesn't sound like the nurse made a medical decision, she just followed standard procedures for a non-life threatening medical condition.

It is not clear how much time elapsed between the child's injury and when her parents got her to the hospital.  Sure, calling 911 would have gotten the child there faster, but it is not immediately obvious that the delay resulted in a worse outcome.

The article is not clear on how much of the fingertip was avulsed.  If it was a chunk of skin and subcutaneous tissue without exposed bone, then the "reattachment" was likely not a revascularization - the soft tissue is sewn on to cover the wound bed, and serves as a biological band-aid to cover the site as the tip regenerates.  If the amputated part included anything more than a sliver of the tuft of the distal phalanx, then the school should have called 911 for immediate transport to the hostpial.

Enemabag Jones: Attaching fingertips really isn't that big of a deal, assuming the body part is kept on ice and it is attended to quickly.

Latesha Coleman arrived at the hospital where Amazing had been taken by her father to find him holding a bag, "and he had the tip of her pinky in the bag."

I really hope there was some ice in that bag.

DO NOT PUT THE AMPUTATED PART DIRECTLY ON ICE!  FREEZING THE PART MAY KILL IT!

Ideally, you should use a wad of gauze moistened with normal saline to make a bulky wrapping, put that in a sealed plastic bag, and then put the bag o' finger in another plastic bag that contains ice and saline to keep it cool.  The part is not receiving oxygen and nutrition because it no longer receives blood.  Chilling the part slows down the metabolic activity of its cells, so they will remain viable longer.

In a non-ideal situation, e.g. cutting off a finger with the saw in your garage, first yell for your wife or kids to call 911 right the hell away.  If you are alone, call 911 yourself immediately.  Do not stop to do anything else, in case you get lightheaded and pass out, delaying your treatment.  If you can still keep your shiat together, stick a rag, paper towel, whatever on the digit and manually squeeze it to slow the bleeding.  DO NOT APPLY A RUBBER BAND OR ANY OTHER TOURNIQUET.  EMS will determine if that is appropriate, and you should let the professional first responders do it.

If you can find the amputated part, you will need to preserve it.  Moisten a small cloth towel, or a wad of paper towels.  The wrapping doesn't have to sterile, but it shouldn't be filthy.  Saturate the wrapping, and loosely squeeze it once so that it is sopping wet. Water is not ideal, but allowing the part to desiccate is worse than exposing it to hypotonic solution. Wrap the finger in the moistened cloth/rag/whatever.  Put the wad o' finger in a Ziploc bag and seal the bag.  Wrap the finger in the moistened cloth/rag/whatever.   Put that bag in a larger Ziploc bag or any other sealed container (you will not get the container back from the hospital, btw) that contains some ice and water.  TELL THE EMS CREW THE BAG/CONTAINER HAS THE FINGER IN IT.

Get your ass to a hospital that has microvascular surgeons that do this kind of thing frequently.  Get there as soon as possible.  If you live in the boonies, you may get a helicopter ride to the big city's level 1 trauma center.

"Wow, tons of good info here! One quick question, how much does it take for a little girl to go into shock? Could this have been life threatening



People tend to be confused about 'shock'. The 'shock' you are describing is an acute psychological condition due to trauma, It is not a medical problem. Now there are four types of medical 'shock' that are all life threatening, it can not be caused by the reaction to an injury.

Hypovolemic shock: When you lose significant volume of blood or are severely dehydrated, you may not have enough blood perfusion to get oxygen to the needed vital organs.

Anaphylatic shock: Due to massive histamine release in an allergic reaction, the body goes into full protective mode and shunts blood to the core. Histamine also causes the blood vessels to leak into the extravascular space. You can lose blood pressure, and not adaquately perfuse the vital organs.

Neurogenic Shock: Due to a head injury, your brain is not regulating your blood pressure properly, and you lose perfusion to the vital organs.

Cardiogenic shock: Due to heart pumping failure you are not perfusing the vital organs.

All shock conditions can be fatal; however, this is never caused by a partial or full amputation of a finger.

Going into 'shock' after an injury that is not life-threatening, it not a life threatening condition unless you happen to walk into traffic or jump off a building due to dissociative fugue.

Also, amputation of a distal tip of the extremity is not in need of 911. Even if it is an open fracture (bone exposed) 911 should be optional if someone with some medical training is available to stabilize the injury and transportation is available to a hospital. Overuse of 911 is one of the numerous reasons that our medical system is going broke.

I'm going to disagree with you on the bolded part. Improper use of the 911 resources in a city, as well as a failure of the EMS profession in the United States to adopt greater educational standards and enter into the preventive and community healthcare aspects of healthcare (See Fort Worth for how effective this can be) is one of the reasons we're going broke in the United States.

I have friends who are in Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand who think we haven't changed since the 70s.

2013-12-16 02:17:41 AM
With a nurse being there, I can see why they might not have called 911 for a non-life threatening emergency. I personally would have called non-emergency 911 (this is a 10 digit phone number, attached to 911 but not for emergency use) just to confirm that the wound was handled correctly and to have transport instructions in place. Like which hospital might be closed to trauma so go instead to hospital cross town, that sort of thing.

A lot of people don't know about the non-emergency 911... I actually had to use this once for a real emergency (calling an ambulance for a guy who collapsed on the street) when my cell phone was unable to call 911. I know, I know, this should not be technically possible. But the awful Huawei phone on Cricket Wireless, when I dialed 911, the call went to voice mail. Like 10 times. Because the non-emergency number was a fully formed phone number, it was able to get through to them, and the were able to bridge the call to the 911 network to get an ambulance out.

hurr..what does a federal bureaucracy has to do with this incident? This school is run by the state, not the feds.


Everything is run by the Feds. And you know what? They're taking your hard earned tax dollars and giving it to poor folks to buy flatscreen TVs. And then they vote Democrat in exchange, amirite?
