For us Basics, what is the correct way to handle someone with a dislocated shoulder? I believe the book mentions to put into a sling and don't attempt to pop back into place. But I've talked to many people who have dislocated their shoulder and they say it extremely painful. Without us not being able to administer a pain killer I doubt the patient would sit still in an ambulance ride to the ER. Does anyone here have experience with treating this type of injury?
