14. Can I be sued if I try to help someone?

The “Good Samaritan Laws” offer legal protection to people who attempt to assist someone who is believed to need medical assistance such as illness, injury or just incapacitated. The answer is clear, give that helping hand! Please remember: You need to ask permission before giving emergency care if they are conscious because they have the right to say NO. If they do say No, you can still call 911 0r 311 for assistance but do not provide care until that person is unconscious, then you may assist them.

15. I am not going to put my mouth on a stranger because I’m worried about infections?

This can be a major concern and with good reason. Fear of acquiring infection. The risk of infection transmitted during mouth to mouth or mouth to nose resuscitation procedure is difficult to define, but is possibly quite low – it does however causes serious concern for many people, hospital personnel’s and the public. You can skip mouth to mouth breathing and just do chest compression, and some emergency kits have mouth covers to reduce the risk.

This is a new change by the American Heart Association. It is called Hands on CPR – Rapid, deep presses on the victim’s chest until assistance arrive. This works just as well as standard CPR cardiac arrest in an adult.

17. Nurse Jackie, I don’t know what to do if my baby needed my help, I need to make sure I can do something if the situation ever occurs!

When one of my BLS clients turned to me and said this, I was truly impressed. She had her 7 month old newborn in class with her. Even though she was an RN, she knows her limitations and was not afraid to say “I’m not sure, help me, teach me”. It can be a frightening feeling to see your own child not breathing, so it is best to to be prepared Mothers should be as prepared as they can possibly be, especially when newborns face the risk of SIDS, choking, or any medical emergency where the newborn may be in medical distress.

This young lady used her baby to both show and improve her skills and did a fantastic job. At the Birthing Center Of NY, we are here for you, to teach you and to support you!
