note to self

If a patient needs spinal precautions (immobilized: laid flat on a scoop stretcher and a cervical collar applied) - consider an antiemetic.

Otherwise, moving an immobilized patient on their side in time for a hefty chunder will result in chunky bits of pineapple and pizza dough all on the side of your ambulance and on you glove.
You may even feel a little nauseated yourself.
