I'm a relatively new nurse working in ER. We see a fair amount of trauma as we are in a remote area, and the closest place.
What is the best way to manage C spine stabalization for those who walk into the ER, or are wheeled in? ie.. a woman is wheeled in from registration with a head, possibly neck/back injury from fall, but walked to the ER. ?? do you lay them on the ground, or tell them to stand up and get in bed with the backboard already laid down. C Collar them while sitting I suppose?
