last week I gave a statment to the gardai (Irish Police), don't worry, I didn't kill anybody!!, here is the story.
I was oncall on night, and they call me to intubate a lady with severe head injury, then I transfered her to dublin by ambulance because she had to do urgent brain operation, any way I can't tell much about that, you know: doctor patient confendiality, they only thing I can say that the story of her accedent was strange, and because of that the irish police were investigating, they called me around 4 days afetr the accedent, and they asked me to give my statment, they took it from all doctors were involved in the managment of this poor lady.
and as I was the anaesthetist who transferred her to dublin, they asked for my statment, it was a nice man who spoke to me, and he told me that he'll do that on the time and place that suit me, so I agreed to do it at home the other day as I wasn't working.
he came at the afternoon, he was a nice young man, and he wrote everything I said, I imagened that his job wasn't easy to write everything from all the docotrs, he told me that my english is good which make his job easier.
any way, I'm writing this story just to compare somthing backhome, before the police man was coming to my home to take my statment, I was afraid as I thought that I had to preapre all my papers and passport, so I made everything ready, but no, when he came, he was so friendly, and he didn't ask at all where I'm from niether he didn't ask any personal document to confirm my ID, I liked that, and I said if the same thing happened backhome, I would be in more trouble, and It would be more complicated and propably I would stay at the police station for long time before they release me!!!
