    • Is there anything in the BSA first-aid materials about self-treatment? At a glance most of the rank-related first-aid stuff is practical application of skills/techniques to others in need of help, but I don't know if it is ever mentioned anywhere what to do with a self-treated injury/wound. Short of anything in the books about this, I'd say a general unit rule about "all injuries involving use of first aid supplies must be reported to an adult." Aside from the obvious need for this kind of reporting in this case, it's also a practical matter of maintaining the troop first aid kit. If scouts are taking stuff from the kit and no one else knows, stuff could be depleted when it is needed next time.
    • I'm curious.... Is it common for a parent to write the "religious letter"? Seems to me that there are an awful lot of families that do not participate regularly in a church...
    • We just got back from summer camp, my first one as SM. On our last night, a scout cut himself in the knee with his knife. He claims to have treated the wound himself correctly. He did not notify an adult. The next morning was return day and his knee was swollen. Upon arriving home his dad had to take him to the ER and he is on antibiotics. He will be fine, but I am wondering if your troop has policies as to who can treat a wound and if adult leaders need to be notified about any injury.
    • Welcome to the forum. Yes, you should state how he fulfills his duty to God. My concern here is that he was very active in his church back when you were very active. He stopped being active in his church when you stopped being active. In the letter, you should avoid using the words "we" and "our" when discussing his duty to God. Just focus on how he fulfills his duty to God.  
    • It is not unusual for factions or cliques to form within a unit. It is almost unavoidable in a larger unit of 40 or 50 scouts.
