Question just about paramedics and clothing removal? Is what the paramedics did to me right?

I was 18 and have a seizure surrounded by class.I lost consciousness then woke up soon after.The class be emptied except for the academy nurse and principal who were treating me afterwards paramedics arrived.
They put a neck brace on me and give me oxygen, then out of nowhere begin cutting stale my clothes.I told them i was fine but they said they have to.The cut shirt and pants past its sell-by date, pulled off my shoes and socks.I figure they would keep my underwear on but...they cut them rotten too.

I laid there unclothed infront of 2 paramedics (1 male& 1 female), my school nurse and principal who be both female. They checked me at the institution then strapped me to a backboad and put me on a stretcher (with my genitals fully exposed). They consequently put a small cover on me and rolled me out to the ambualnce with everyone watching.
Once I wasin the ambulance the feminine paramedic who was riding surrounded by the back next to me pulled the cover off me and worked on me.When we get to the hospital they rolled me to the E.R fully exposed.Humiliated

Answer:    No paramedic would ever do such a thing. Not for a commandeering. A multi-trauma victim, YES almost certainly they would completely strip u naked beside no regard for who see. In that situation your modesty takes a backseat to the entail for you to be completely naked so adjectives of your injuries can be discovered, so as you can be appropriately treated, and kept alive. But a school kid who a short time ago has a fit. I am sorry but no paramedic would do this. So I guess I am saying that you are lying. However if this did transpire then yes you inevitability to talk to their superiors.

I would also similar to to add that when I do requirement to strip a patient "Trauma Naked" that after I own examined their whole body for injuries, I forthwith cover them back up. Nor enjoy I EVER rolled a patient into the ER not covered up.
Maybe they considered your clothes a risk to you?
I doubt this ever happened.
They be checking for any injuries you may have obtain during the seizure. for example, you could enjoy fell off your stool, landed on your arm the wrong track, and broken it. Standard protocol. Embarrassing yes, but necessary as economically. Clothes can effect circulation believe it or not. Considering they were treating you for a commandeering, it's perfectly typical what they did.now if you have broken your nose and they did adjectives that, I'd be a bit concerned.
Im a paramedic, this is standard procedure but your Principal should not have be allowed in the room. And unless she be registered, your school nurse should hold not been within there any.
However, the paramedics had every right to remove your clothing and hold you in the nude for as long as they feel they had to. They did cover you when they moved you to the ambulance which is proper procedure.
In one and the same situation i would have covered you on the passageway into the hospital, but if the paramedics didn't see it as the right thing to do, consequently that is their choice.

It's a tough situation to be within, but you should be happy you are okay.
your alive and very well right? then i wouldnt verbs about it, they know what their doing
same article happened to me when i electrocued myself. Except they in reality rolled me from my house to the ambualnce fully naked. You get off flowing haha
It would be interesting... IF... they do that very same entry to EVERYONE that has a requisition of all ages and sexual category every time with NO exceptions. That is the allowed test for this.

If you hold a "known tremor history", take tablets daily and
the occupation was witnessed... you could spawn a better case for at tiniest only removing the clothing from the waist up and providing some modest cover. This allows for monitor leads and cardiopulmonary evaluation. If the waist down clothing be not loose fitting...that would be another reason to remove it. It is a perspicacity call. I mull over the underwear could have be left on contained by your case. I expect the fact, you be able to speak and could form sense of the situation is worthy of noting. Being 18 years of age plays into this also. Normally, you enjoy a right to refuse adjectives or part of treatment. There are circumstances following seizure... that you might not be fully capable of making decision with apt judgment...

If this be a first seizure for you... and if the appropriation was not witnessed (you be found unconscious or post ictal)...next I could make a baggage for the total clothing removal. However, it was superfluous to expose you to the public as you describe. You can examine someone who is nude (under a blanket) area by nouns without exposing them to the world.

There are lots causes for seizure to consider and an examination to rule-out other injury is appropriate. The nouns brace and backboard was excellent and correct. Clothing have to be cut... rather than pulled stale...even in situations where on earth spine injury is remotely possible.

I think the remedy is... the two paramedics want to have their clothing cut past its sell-by date of them, be put in a nouns brace and then bring back strapped to a backboard and take like ride you did with others watching... (as happen to you). This time YOU get to keep watch on as they watched you. They can enjoy the Fire Chief and their peers watching...since your authority figures (Nurse and Principal) and your peers observed you surrounded by that helpless situation. I really think the conservatory nurse could have done more to insure that you be kept modest. I know professionals get stuck in the moment...but your vigilance was elementary EMS care... as you described it... not brain surgery!
I also doubt the truthfulness of this cross-question.

Paramedics do have to bring a patient's clothing off for a range of reasons, but we're usually completely careful to protect the patient's modesty as much as possible. I enjoy NEVER rolled a patient into the ER unclothed (they were at tiniest covered with a sheet).
