Quick, effective medication can be the difference between life and death. Most people think that an ambulance getting to an accident scene on time means that lives are saved, but that is not the case. The ambulance is only fitted with machines as well as equipment to sustain you until your arrival at the hospital. Once there, it is then the prerogative for a specialist that has dealt with emergency medicine to decide whether one is fit to be admitted or not. One such individual is Dr. Eric Forsthoefel. He is an MD who specializes in critical treatment in Tallahassee, Florida.
The most challenging aspect of his occupation is to come to a shift and have no idea what is going to happen. The entire session is clouded in mystery until he checks into the hospital. Not knowing what is going to come through the door can cause a lot of tension but at the same time creates joy because somebody’s life could be saved in the long run. He explains that an average working week can have up to 3 to 5 shifts. Five being on the higher side. But that is his passion as from the time he was young he always wanted to work in a profession that involved saving people’s lives.
From then on he attended the university in Louisiana and completed his studies in the school of medicine. He got his bachelor’s degree in the year 2012 and after completing his residency in the same institution. Since then, Dr. Eric Forsthoefel has been practicing for more than six years. If you did not know it is a requirement for a patient to see a doctor like him to determine whether or not they will be admitted into the hospital. There are pre-specified requirements that need to be met as emergency physicians are not permitted to admit people.
Apart from admitting people is Dr. Eric Forsthoefel enjoys meeting and working with people from all walks of life. His secret to dealing with the pressures of the job is always to maintain a rational mind and to keep emotions away from the situation.
