Yes indeed. I always introduce myself, identify what I do and then ask politely if I can help them. For an uncounscious person, if they are brought to the ER, I assume that they want care (implied consent). However, if there are family members or friends with the patient, then you introduce yourself, tell them who and what you are planning to do and go from there.

Yep...

it happened in most cases here in our place, while giving aid to some serious case, there were times that when you transfer to other pt. you will forget to ask permission, are we liable to that incase he/she make complaint, where infact he/she saw you how busy you are?it refers to conscious one....

Yep, otherwise it is considered medical assault.
