What's normal hospital procedure when a patient is brought in from an accident site, unconscious? (Think of a train derailment, or bus accident...not massive injuries, but a couple of people who get bonked on the head and need treatment immediately, but aren't able to speak for themselves. Male, or female.)
Specifically, I was wondering how contacting relatives is handled, especially if items like purses or wallets are missing. Do employees go through cell phones to find contacts?
Also, do doctors check for previous conditions or ailments in the blood, if the patient is taking meds, or if they're pregnant, before administering treatments?
Thanks in advance!
