This is what works best for me. The next best thing is working in a community where I do not know the patients, it makes stuff like a peds code a little less hard.
While working in my small town as an EMT, we coded the doctor (my personal physician) who was on call that night for the hospital. They called him for an ER patient, he starts talking gibberish as his AICD was firing, we get there, he was talking to us, and he codes. Sucky.
