Paramedic: I’m Kelly, what’s your name? What’s your age?
Robert: (erm…) Robert. I’m 45.
Paramedic: OK, Robert. Tell me what’s happened.
Robert: I think I hurt my head… I have such a headache. And (erm) I think I broke my arm and knee… It hurts a lot!
Paramedic: Did you bumpyour head? Did you fall over?
Robert: Yes, I believe so … I think I hit the ground. There - next to this bus stop. I fell off my bicycle.
Paramedic: I understand. Is the pain only in your arm and knee? Please look at me. Robert, is it your left or right side?
Robert: I think… (erm), sorry, yes - left arm and left knee … are they broken?
Paramedic: I’m not sure, sir. We need to examineyou and do some tests. Does anything else hurt?
Robert: Mmm… (a positive nod) my right hand is bleeding and my thumb stingshere a bit when I touch it. I was trying to stop myself from falling, you see.
Paramedic: Everything will be ok. Let me check and put a dressingon it. OK… now, try not to move so we can assessany other injuries.
Robert: Yes, I’ll try. But it hurts so much!
Paramedic: OK, now, please look at me. Try to move your head side to side. Slowly, please. Like this (showing).
Robert: Yes. OK.
Paramedic: OK, that’s great. Now, can you bring your chinto your chest for me, please?
Robert: Ah, yes, I think so.
Paramedic: That’s good. Let’s see if you can lift your arms up slowly.
Robert: Ouch!
Paramedic: Is it the left or the right one? Which one hurts?
Robert: Left. My left arm. Definitely.
Paramedic: OK. I am going to carefully touch your knees now. Please let me know if you feel any pain.
Robert: Yes, again - my left knee. But there’s no blood. Is it broken?
Paramedic: Well, I cannot say for sure just yet. We will have to take you to the emergency unit. Is there anyone we can contact to tell them about your accident?
Robert: Yes, my wife.
Paramedic: Ok, I will take those details in a second. You should know that I don’t believe you’ve broken any bones. But, just to be sure, we will order anX-Ray when we get to the hospital. We will also keep you under observationsince you’ve hit your head, pretty hard. We need to check for signs of brain injury.
Robert: Is that serious?
Paramedic: Don’t worry. This is a standard procedurewhen somebody hits their head. OK, now, slide over to the stretcherand we will get you to the ambulance. We go after ‘three’. So, ready … 1, 2, 3 (…) (ambulance signals)
