As Medics had to endure being abused by a Patient, an act of kindness went a long way to uplifting the morale of the emergency ambulance crew

We often hear about the stories of members of the public who abuse our colleagues as they try to carry out their hard and often traumatic work.
Sometimes, you might be forgiven for thinking that the ‘nasty’ individuals out there outnumber the decent folk who really appreciate the work that you all do.
Well, this morning our attention was drawn to a story about some Medics in Barnsley who were treating a patient and who ended up being abused by the very person who called for their help.
Due to the abuse, the Medics had no choice other than to request the assistance of the Police.
Meanwhile, a local resident noticed what was happening and rather than just becoming an observer, decided to try and do her bit to ‘help’ the Medics.
Roxy Sherwood published a post on her Facebook page that said:

“So we had an ambulance outside our house last night for over 3 hours as whoever they where treating decided to abuse the paramedics , meaning they had to call the police.
“The ambulance couldn’t move until the police arrived.
“Not only could these people have responded to numerous call outs in this time but they were [genuinely] nice people.
“So we gave them ice pops. Then a cold drink , a bun and some crisps. Nothing special.
“They where still there when I went to bed.
“This morning I woke up to this been pushed through the letter box.
“All they do for us as part of the emergency services and they decided to thank us.
“Not enough people appreciate our services.
“Please think twice before abusing the very people you may one day need to save yours or your loved ones life!”.
The note that had been put through the letterbox of Ms Sherwoods’ house by the Medics read:
“we would just like to say a huge thank you for your kindness and generosity this evening.

“Its not very often that we feel appreciated.
“And as you can imagine, its going to be a busy one for us tonight.
“Your supplies have kept us going a little longer and you act of kindness has given us a much needed morale boost.
“Thank you so much – Abi & Paul – Paramedics”.
It just goes to show, that despite all of the selfish attention-seeking fools out there who will abuse you for trying to help them, there will always be decent and thoughtful folk like Ms Sherwood who genuine appreciates the work you do and the many challenges which you face.
To Ms Sherwood: On behalf of all of the emergency services, we salute you and want to thank you for your kind and thoughtful gesture.
