World First Aid Day: Emirati paramedic reveals challenges of her job


Wadha, who works at Madinat Khalifa Health Center – Seha Clinic in Abu Dhabi, described his work as one of the sensitive and vital jobs that requires decisive intervention and crucial decision making in the management of the condition and the methods of treatment of a patient. She believes the job requires special characteristics, including stamina and critical thinking.

As part of your daily routine, you begin by preparing the equipment you will use during the day, ensuring its suitability, as well as ensuring that there are sufficient supplies in case of any emergency situation.

Wadha said: “There are a number of challenges we face as paramedics that we have to adapt to depending on the situation. This includes daily work pressures and overcoming language barriers when communicating, given the cultural diversity of UAE communities. “

He added: “Paramedics must also have skills such as quick decision-making, staying calm under pressure, empathy and concern for others.”

Wadha has attended several first aid training courses to improve his skills as a frontline paramedic.

She said: “I extend my gratitude and appreciation to the wise leadership of the UAE and the Frontline Heroes Office for continuing to trust and support frontline workers. “I am determined to continue serving people in need in the United Arab Emirates, a country that is very close to my heart.”

To mark World First Aid Day, the Frontline Heroes Office praised the efforts of paramedics, doctors and nurses, and their contribution to helping treat and save people’s lives.

The prominent role of paramedics was evident through their swift efforts in Operation ‘Gallant Knight 2’ as they were ready to provide aid to the wounded and wounded following the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria earlier this year.
