Abandonment and Negligence

Once you have started first aid, do not leave the victim until another trained person takes over. Leaving the victim without help is considered as abandonment.

Negligence occurs when a victim suffers further injury or harm because the care that was provided did not meet the standards expected from a person with similar training in a similar situation. Negligence involves the following:
  • Having a duty to act, but either not doing so or doing so incorrectly.
  • Causing injury and damages
