Helping with Injuries

April 11, 2012

It can be frightening to be the individual in control of caring for a volunteer who has suffered an injury in your animal rescue, but here are a few easy steps to assist you in knowing what to do if you’re in that position. First and foremost, make sure the person is breathing.  Next, DO NOT shift the hurt person except for if there are additional risks such as a fire. Finally, if a seizure takes place, rotate the individual on their side and eliminate all objects around them that could be grounds for injury. BY NO MEANS PUT ANYTHING IN THE MOUTH OF A INDIVIDUAL HAVNG A SEIZURE. Keep in mind, if there is a obvious injury or the person is unconscious, call 9-1-1 immediately.
