My Red Cross first aid app says putting an unconscious person in the recovery position is still advisable even if they might have a spinal injury. So can we discuss whether using the recovery position on people with spinal injuries is really an example of Worst Aid, and possibly removing examples founded on that assumption?

"In one famous case, lifeguards were resuscitating a victim, but instead of breathing, they were saying, "breath, breath" as they did in practice." So famous, apparently, I can't find any links to it.

Re Anne of Green Gables, ipecac being administered to croupy child - take a look here.. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-ipecac.htm Turns out that the protocol change re ipecac and croup happened in 2005. As Anne Shirley is doing this before WW1, the 19th century protocol,that it was the thing to do, would have held sway. Trope averted due to point in time?
