Thanks for the reply!! So basically I guess what I am trying to figure out and by what you've just told me is, if I do basic first aid or CPR and nothing more advanced than that i.e. airway mgmt or along those lines and await EMS to arrive on scene I fulfilled my duty to act. I would not be working under protocols or a physician.
Hey all! quick question, I work in construction and am currently in an EMT class. Once I get my EMT cert, what is my liability / duty to act if someone gets hurt and requires first aid on the job site?? I will most likely be the job site "First Aid Coordinator" any advise or knowledge will be greatly appreciated!!
