After 15 years in the forces as a paramedic and 10 years in an A&E in Kent absolutely disgusted that when a person comes in with a head injury NO head obs done whatsoever at triage, was palmed of to SEH by triage.
I must say the doc there straight away did head obs !!!!.
Obviously your protocols in A&E are different from most of the world
Needless to say problems evolved and we had to go back .
Still no head obs were done at triage , so how can they tell if someone with a head injury has further problems or complications other than being mind readers.
Very Unprofessional .
