Why do the paramedics strip be completely naked if I'm in a bad car crash?
When I crashed my car last winter,I had to be brought to the hospital,and I wasn't completely awake.When I woke up,I was just in this paper thing when I remember being completely dressed.I felt embarrassed that they saw me naked.

Animal mother!
Yes, to check for injuries!

to make sure there are no hidden injuries

We can't treat what we can't see.

If you are in a significant wreck, we will strip you to make sure there are no hidden injuries, especially if you are unconscious or semi-unresponsive (obviously if you are less than fully conscious, you won't be able to tell us where it hurts).

We are extremely professional about this, and make every effort to keep your dignity intact.

Usually when I have to strip someone, I'm careful to leave enough clothing intact to retain their modesty (if at all possible), and I always cover them with a sheet as soon as I've checked for injuries.

it's waaaaaaaaaay better then someone raping you

Luv Ya
yeah, I've been in four and one was major-they stripped me after life flighting me, I'm sure they do it more then 3 times every day, so I mean they're not going to remember every body they look at...and I'm sure they're just in a rush and trying to find problems that they really don't take everything in...just more on, it's not worth worrying about, I just hope you're alright after that accident-I know it took me over two years to recover, and I think the best part about accidents is getting up and standing taller then before, I just hope your alright and I hope you can just move-its really the only thing to do

It is embarassing. But it is neccesary. If you are unable to tell them your injuries, they must investigate on their own, which includes cutting off a $120 jacket, $80 pair of jeans and and $18 top. I'm not even going into the shoes....those were knocked off of me. Claim it on the insurance later and be happy you are alive.

They have to be able to investigate your entire body. Would you prefer it if they said, "Ooh, this might embarrass him, let's just assume everything's okay!"?

Devil Doc
We remove the clothes so we can do an assesment head to toe front to back. I have cut of a guys ostrichskin cowboy boots and he wasnt happy but I would rather cut off things in the field that u can buy than they cut off things cause u wont be able to use that leg, foot, arm, or u lose your life cause we didnt see that hole in your back. And as a professional we dont notice cause we see it daily we are concerned with saving a life not checkin someone out.

We do that (trying to leave underwear on) so we can see everything. It makes it easier to spot injuries that the patient may not be aware of. If someone breaks their leg the pain may be so bad that they don't notice a cut on their abdomen that could be more serious than the leg injury. It also gives us easier access to veins so if we need to start an IV we don't have to roll up sleeves. Its mostly so we can find injuries, but its also to make our lives a little easier.

#1 reason - not all injuries are visible.

As a former medic, trust me we don't notice.
