Classroom Summary - Today we introduced the American Red Cross and practiced spotting how bystanders helped in a school based emergency and a community based emergency. Then we brainstormed why someone may choose not to help in an emergency situation. These are the answers we focused on... Do not know what to do - that is why we are taking this class! Afraid to do something wrong - this class will show you what you should do and what you should not do...it is basic skills nothing very invasive Think someone else will help - YOU go call 911 Afraid of disease - talked about hand washing and will demonstrate proper glove use next class period, we also looked at some of the breathing barriers that exist Afraid of getting sued - we will talk about the good Samaritan law that protects people as long as they get permission, act within their training and are not negligent.
