Do not abandon the victim

First aid training

Once you have started your care, it is very important that you should never leave the victim. You can only do so if someone with competent training can take over your place or if the emergency medical services has arrived.

Leaving the victim without someone to continue care is called abandonment.

As you turnover the victim, there are several information that you should give to the person taking over your care. Among them are the following:

Nature of the Emergency - this could be an injury or an illness

First aid care provided - the aid given to the victim

Other Important Details - medications, allergies

As we go on with our discussion, you will learn more of other important details that you may provide to any person taking over the care or to any responding emergency medical services personnel.
