30.17 Transportation of Injured

Transportation of Injured. If no stretcher or ambulance is at hand, one may be improvised by turning the sleeves of a coat inside out, passing poles through them and buttoning the coat; a long stretcher may be constructed with two coats. A broad board or shutter covered with straw or clothing will provide a usable stretcher. Always test a stretcher before placing a patient upon it. Do not carry a stretcher upon the shoulders except when going up hill and up stairs. Avoid lifting over walls, hedges and ditches; keep level. If a chair is used in carrying, carry the patient back forward.
