Dead dead dead

Patient from yesterday; died.

Ambulance service brought in a poorly patient. Refused conveyance from the first crew but later called them back. Brought in. Died. I saw the paramedic who went to him initially. I like this guy, he is compassionate, caring, intelligent and gives a shit. He is so cut up about this man who died, but he DECLINED to go to hospital. I tried to console this paramedic but he thinks he did wrong. He did NOTHING wrong.

Patients. The ones who are not sick want to go to hospital, the ones who are sick want to stay at home. Only God knows the time for our exit from this passage we call life.
