Question

The driver is a female, approximate age 40, who is conscious, alert, and oriented times three. Your partner applies head stabilization from the backseat while you conduct the assessment. The patient states that she's fine and just wants a ride to the hospital. The windshield is cracked and the patient is not wearing a seat belt. She has a bruise on the front of her forehead. You explain that you want to apply a cervical collar and then a Kendrick Extrication Device (KED) to remove her from the vehicle to protect her spine. She becomes agitated and announces that all she wants is a ride to the hospital and that she doesn't want you to do anything other than that. She begins to get out of the car.
