Would you agree with the idea than any child under 6 should have their shirt cut open straight away when they come into an ambulance? This might be because children 6 and under are more likely to fidget and fight if they realise what you are going to do so getting it done as the first thing makes it easier later.

27% (3) I think it's a good idea
0% (0) That's a terrible idea
72% (8) Don't do it unless you need to

Do children who do wear an undershirt or a vest under their shirt make your job harder? eg. It takes you longer because of the extra layers

When you cut a kids shirt, does the child usually react differently depending on if they have an undershirt/vest or not? eg. they are more likely to cry if they haven't got one underneath
