EMT Challenge Cases


S: You arrive at someone's home and find a woman lying on her bed struggling to breath while a burly looking man sat next to her, holding her hand. Standing near the woman was a whimpering child. The boy’s age is 10 years old. 

O: The woman was very impatient stating “I waited over two hours and I want some service.” Your records indicate that you received the call exactly 10 minutes ago.  You notice a fracture of child's radius, significant swelling at the midshaft of the radius and the arm appeared bent at an angle. When asked how this happened, the child silently drew away. The mother says, “I’m taking my son and I’m leaving.”

How would you handle this case?
