Okay it's fess up time .Grab a coffee and stay a while.
So last week you know that I got the job and this little escapade happened about 18months into the job.
It was decided by the powers that be that each department should have a First Aid Officer to deal with minor accidents so a volunteer was needed to step forward for the post. Now I wasn't particularly interested but before I knew it my name was put up and seconded before I had time to draw breath! We all had to be duly trained by the Red Cross and a training day was scheduled to be held at another of our buildings.
The day arrived and about 20 of us from various departments turned up for the three day course.(I did not go anywhere near the coffee machine just in case your wondering even though this was a different location). We started off by learning to do resuscitation and before the boys (we were a mixed bunch) could get excited about it we were told it would be on the standard plastic dummy and not on us girls. Well managed to get through that alright and we stopped for a break. Next up was learning how to put someone into the recovery position and we were paired up for this. I was with J.C. from Engineering and he volunteered to go first. So he is lying on the floor and (cross my heart I barely touched him) I flipped him over as we had been shown and he let out the most awful howl of pain and clutched his knee. The instructor came running over and examined his knee and said 'We need to call an ambulance I think you have dislocated your knee cap!!' In my defence he was a rugby player and this was an old recurring injury but he was off work for two weeks and I went down in history as the only person to ever put her partner in Hospital on a First Aid Course!!!!Now I know you all want to know the answer so yes I did pass and got my certificate but you know the funny thing ? No one was ever ill on my watch!
