Discussion Board Give an example of a time when you felt the need to speak up about a situation on the fireground that did not look or feel right but did not. Why did you not speak up? Would you speak up if the situation occurred again? ALSO PLEASE REPLY TO ANOTHER STUDENTS COMMENT BELOW lindsey: Due to the fact that I do not have a fire background I can not answer this question from that aspect, I however have a background in patient care so I will answer it from that aspect. When I first became a dental assistant I was a contractor for the Navy and worked on base. Working for the military vs working in private practice is very different. When I worked on base we were told what to do and expected to just do it without any issues as if we were active duty too. There were times that I felt like patients were not always getting the quality of care that they deserved, which didn’t sit well with me. At that time I did not say anything or ask questions because I did not want to have any issues. Now that I am more seasoned I will ask questions and I have no issue speaking up because everyone deserves the highest quality of care.
