A child fell off his bike and sustained a closed-head
injury. The child is currently awake and alert, but his mother states that he
“passed out” for approximately 2 minutes. The mother appears highly anxious and
is very tearful. The child was not wearing a helmet. Which is a priority for
the triage nurse to say at this time?

1. “Was anyone else injured in the accident?”

2. “Tell me more about the accident.”

3. “Did he vomit, have a seizure, or display any other
behavior that was unusual when he woke up?”

4. “Why was he not wearing a helmet?”
