The organization formerly known as the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospital Organizations (hereafter referred to on MDOD as TOFKAJCAHO) was notable absent at the scene of this roll-over motor vehicle crash on a busy interstate. I, for one, am putting this out publicly because there are many pieces of paper that were not filled-out.
Briefly, six people were in this vehicle, pictured above, when the driver rolled it at high speed. One passenger was ejected and the fire department had to cut the driver out with some piece of machinery which I'm not sure had been recently inspected by OSHA.
Besides that, some off-duty military combat medics were first on the scene, along with bystanders with no medical training. They promptly secured the scene and by the time I got there had done all manner of life-saving interventions and all I had to do was tell the state trooper to call in the helicopters.
The end result was that two people who might have died without these good Samaritans are going to walk out of the hospital.
TOFKAJCAHO was never called. NEVER! I would appreciate it if any of you kind readers with an 'in' with TOFKAJCAHO could please bring this to their attention so that we may rectify this situation and punish those involved.
Editors Note: Since TOFKAJCAHO is currently operating as "the JC", I think that we need to bestow upon them a symbol, much as Prince did for some years. Suggestions now being accepted and will post the official TOFKAJCAHO symbol soon.
