FROM THE EXPERT
First responders (including EMT's, first aid instructors and instructor trainers) are prohibited by law from issuing diagnoses unless they are licensed health care providers (such as physicians, nurse practitioners, etc.) in the applicable state. Additionally, many states prohibit a first responder from directing an individual to seeking medical care based upon information the patient has given.
