Is my answer correct?

List the steps you should follow to help an individual who appears to have been poisoned.

A: To help an individual who appears to have been poisoned, you must follow the steps below:
1. Seek medical assistance immediately.
2. Contact a Poison Control Center.
3. If you suspect inhaled poisoning, first be certain, or make sure, that is safe to enter the area.
4. Move the victim away from the poison and into fresh air.
5. Seek medical assistance promptly if the victim is unconscious.
6. Take the container of the suspected poison along with you to the emergency room to aid the staff in treating the poisoning.
7. Check the victim’s ABCs.
8. If you need to give rescue breaths or administer CPR (if you are certified in this technique), be certain that no poison is upon the victim’s mouth; otherwise, you could become contaminated as well. (If there is poison in the victim’s mouth or nose, wait for professional medical assistance.)
9. Hold the victim’s mouth closed, seal your mouth around the victim’s noise, and provide rescue breaths through the nose.
10. Open the victim’s mouth to allow him or her to “exhale.”
