A cardinal rule in the medical field is to avoid doing more harm than good to the patient.  This is the reason we must be careful to protect the patient from infection or disease while attempting to treat him.  There are times in emergency situations when you may not have the time to wash your hands or to wear gloves and mask as you work with the casualty.  This is understandable.  You must work quickly to help the casualty.
