By order of InsomniacMedic after last weekend's horrendous shifts:
All parents or soon to be parents of babies and young children must:
1) Undertake a basic paediatric first aid course. And refresh it regularly.
2) Have child-friendly Calpol / Tylenol / Ibuprofen on tap. I mean it. A never ending supply. And know how and when to use it.
3) Be aware that ambulances are for emergencies. We're here for you and your child whenever you need us. But we're not here for common colds.
4) If necessary, take a course in common sense. It's not as common as it should be.
This order has no expiry date.
