CMC should reconsider its decision
September 30, 2011
I taught the EMT class as well as other EMS classes at CMC Aspen for several years. I feel the removal of Channing from class is a lost opportunity. Many students over the years have had medical issues, and we used their personal experience to teach the rest of the class about a particular subject.
I can tell students about an aura that may be present prior to a seizure but I have never had one. I can only do the same for asthma, diabetes and many other subjects that I may have observed but never experienced.
At the EMT level she should not have any trouble completing her clinicals. Since she is affiliated with Aspen Fire she could complete them there if AVH was not possible. I hope CMC will reconsider.
