Definition of the word: Quasi-Medic
Quasi-Medic - A person or automaton that is neither doctor nor nurse, but somehow still discouragingly entrusted with the preservation of ones very life, specifically in its waning seconds.
Unlike traditional medical professionals, quasi-medics can not be held accountable for deaths resulting from their care or lack of, regardless of whether or not it is intentional, which surveys have shown, it almost always is.
Quasi-medics, though entrusted with preserving the sanctity of life in office buildings, little league games and in limited instances at illegal death matches, they are commonly paid less than 1/3rd of the survival rate. Wealthy attorneys and politicians fail to understand why they are the first permitted and even encouraged to die on the way to more serious medical care, but there are no critics of such actions, so it goes largely unnoticed.
Quasi-Medic also refers to a vessel, person, profession or situation which would traditionally be of a true medical nature, but for whatever reason is not. The most common reasons for such a shortfall include budget and laziness, but rarely anything else.
