Below is an image of an accident scene. Over the next couple of days we will add different angles of the scene.
Firstly, have a look at the scene and then have a go at answering the questions below the picture:
You are travelling down the same road behind the dark blue VW car when you come across this accident. You have 8 bystanders available to you who have arrived at the scene. They have no first aid training but are willing to help you in any way you direct them to.
- Where will you park your vehicle to maximise your safety?
- How will you manage the accident scene?
- What hazards are there that could hurt you?
- How many potential patients are there?
- Who will you treat first and why?
Write down your answers and we will add a different picture tomorrow……let’s see if your answers change at all.
Tune in tomorrow for the next image and attempt the same questions….
