NPC Interaction

Is there any improvement in progress in NPC interaction?

In my current game, my NPC friend got hurt and kept bleeding. I can’t heal her or do first aid even I have the right items. Also, the NPC seems don’t know which armor or weapon is better. I gave her a combat knife and an army helmet but she did not use them. (keep using her baseball bat>_<

Then she died because of severe bleeding. RIP
