Daffyd you make a good very good point, but I'm a fan of erring on the side of caution. If the ankle assessment turns out well though, and there are no signs of shock, POV could also be an option.

      What does POV stand for in this case? (presumably not Point-Of-View used in my computer games).


      When calling 911...

      a) Will they discuss with you if the ambulance is really needed? Though I believe they kinda have to once you ask because if something goes wrong after that they are in a bad legal situation.

      b) If they come and passenger refuses to come (after their mucho influence) is there no charge?

      c) I posted prior to the injury details so was treating as serious enough. I have had some one go on about a sprained ankle only to find out later that they had actually snapped 2 of 3 tendons and if the last one had gone there foot would have been Kaput.
