Q1. Use this case study to answer questions 1-10.

It is your first day as an EMT. You are called to the scene of a fall. You arrive on scene, assess the safety of the scene for both yourself, your partner and the other people you notice milling around. You identify that there is only one person involved in this accident. A brief look around and asking if anybody else is hurt does not result in anybody else looking like they need help or asking for help. You ask the other people that are crowding in on the injured person to step back and tell them that you are here to help and will be assessing the patient to decide what the next steps are. You introduce yourself and approach the patient who agrees to an assessment. You perform your full assessment and find them to have a deformity to their arm and you are worried about a broken bone. You place the patient on your gurney and transport them to the ambulance. In the ambulance, you place a supportive wrap (a splint) around the injured arm and drive the patient to the hospital. On the way to the hospital you reassess the patient and their pain- which has improved since the placement of the splint. At the hospital you give a report to the doctors and nurses with the information you have gathered and what you have done so far. With that, you transfer the patient to their care and return to your ambulance.
