Someone not adequately trained in proper first aid procedures can cause more damage with the best of intent if they do not know what they are doing.
Prime example: I responded to a full cardiac arrest (heart not beating) and the person on scene who "knew" CPR was doing compressions at the level of the xiphoid process (lower chest/upper abdomen) and not the sternum. This doesn't help circulation, and while the patient would probably have not survived regardless, this was more or less another nail in the coffin.

fiding a client bleeding what do you do in the care industry
Weegy: If you found a client bleeding in their care environment you would first document all details of the situation. This includes the scene in which you walked into and then the clients account of what happened. [ After you have gathered all pertinent details you must file a report with the administration of the facility and be prepared to move above them if/when your complaint/report goes unanswered. Abuse in care environments is unethical and it is your duty as a care provider to protect the elderly or the young who are dependent upon you. ] (More)
