i was driving in my car when i witnessed a 3 car accident. a truck ran a light and two other cars were hit. the truck flipped over to its side. my immediate reaction was:eek::eek:. i pulled over, got my cpr mask ( which was conveniently in my purse:rolleyes:) and ran over to the scene and started to assess all persons involved. i went to each car to make sure everyone was alert, breathing, and etc. thankfully no one was seriously injured. one guy involved was c/o chest pain and neck pain. another guy was limping and c/o pain to his ble, i sent someone to get ice and i applied it to his legs. i stayed until ems came and gave them report. i also encouraged everyone involved to go to the hospital. one bystander asked what kind of nursing i do. i said currently peds. he said " wow, how were you able to handle all those grown men"? i said once a nurse always a nurse no matter what your specialty is. i always used to ask myself would i ever stop to aide in an accident. i guess i answered my question today. if it were my loved one i would want anyone with any knowledge of basic first aid and cpr to assist. it felt really good to offer my assistance today.
