First Aid: After the Emergency

After The Emergency

After the initial rush of an emergency is not uncommon to feel unappreciated, sad, or even guilty once other rescuers have taken over. Remember that you should do your personal best to make the outcome potentially better for the victim. People will not always have a positive outcome and some may die. You should talk with other rescuers or seek professional advice if you feel needed to effectively deal with these feelings. There is nothing wrong with asking for emotional help or support after an emergency.

Additionally after an emergency you must maintain confidentiality about what occurred. You should only tell information to need to know parties and limit sharing information with others. Remember to keep private things private. Document events and complete appropriate forms according to your policies and procedures to maintain a legal record of what occurred. When documenting be very detailed. If you fail to write it down initially – it did not happen if later reviewed in a court of law.
