What Should You Do When Caring for a Terminally Ill Patient Who Is Unconscious?

Answer

When caring for a terminally ill patient who is unconscious, you should immediately call an ambulance. While the ambulance is on their way to retrieve the patient, you should check the patient's pulse and roll them over to their back-side very gently while supporting the neck. In my opinion, you should seek immediate medical assistance when dealing with anyone who has lost consciousness.
