OK, so we have this Paramedic student who moved from North Carolina, and he is in his clinicals for his paramedic. He is a RABID fundamentalist, and is driving me and my partner absolutely crazy.
Other crews have gotten so sick of him that they refuse to allow him to do any skills, and one crew even left him at Burger King during lunch.
i dont have the option to make any more outright trouble, as i had a run-in with the medical director and informed him what i really think of the way he runs things. so in short, the officers stuck me with this ultra right-wing student.
so far, i have been informed numerous times that i am going to hell, that i worship idols (namey Mary), and a host of other things. I tried getting him to quit on “moral grounds” by telling him that the drugs we give were all developed on fetal tissue, that we transport women to abortion clinics, and just about anything to get this man off my ambulance. he didnt buy it.
its pretty obvious that the brass doesnt want any legal trouble by firing him over his rants and diatribes on paramedic preceptors. so i have two questions:
how do i deal with him and his radical views? he is hell bent on “saving” my soul.
assuming #1 is impossible, can i just convince him that i am the antichrist incarnate so he chooses another clinical preceptor?
to put things in perspective, he thinks Fred Phelps and the Westboro baptist Church are “one of the few true Christians left”.
