sometimes it dangerous to get involved with a situation with lots of blood, especially if its a stranger and you have NO idea what they could be infected with, if the blood gets into your system through open sores or something, that could hurt you

1. When it is not needed

2. When you do not have permission from a conscious victim

3. If the situation is unsafe

4. If you cannot help

There are only really ever two instances that you should NOT perform first aid.
First - Is when you are putting your life in danger. For example; If someone gets hit by a car. You do not start first aid until the traffic has stopped. If the traffic doesn't stop I'm afraid you shouldn't help them. Therefor always ensure that you are safe before helping other people. Look at it this way. If you run to help someone and you get hurt. You cant help them right? Where as if its safe for you. You can carry out the first aid properly.
The second instance is; If you feel that you performing first aid could further injure the casualty. If you feel that helping them may cause their condition to worsen. Leave it to the professionals!
But remember, justify what ever you do. Think to your self?
Do they need help? Is it safe for me? Do i know what I'm doing?
If the answer is yes to all of them questions. Help them
Hope this helps
Sam

If you are putting yourself in danger by doing so.

Edit - You can give first aid to a person having a seizure.

When the injury is too severe for your means. If its too bad call 9-1-1 and wait for help. You could make matters worse if you interfere.


shahahaha.
when you don't have a clue of what your doing.. maybe?


cal_mattesdon
so according to the person above, if a person isn't conscious you shouldn't give first aid??!?!!?

If I am unconscious I hope to hell you don't come along!! I want someone who will think, 'there is someone who is not conscious - she may need some help' and bloody HELP ME!!

I would always attempt first aid. If there was a significant danger I would attempt to remove said danger or remove the person from it and THEN carry out first aid.

Each to their own - it's a judgement call. Personally, I couldn't walk away. I know I can help and therefore I should

as for not knowing what you are doing - ANY attempt is better than no attempt, particularly in an emergency situation.

When you are not capable of administering it or it is not needed or when it would render you a patient as well.
