Medical Supplies – Stock Up!

stock-up-on-medical-supplies

After I wrote my post yesterday, I also came across and reread a guest post we had by ‘Nurse Amy’. Posted on January 18, 2012, it’s titled, ‘List of ‘Collapse’ Medical Supplies’. As I was reading through her list of medical supplies that you should have as a prepper, I thought to myself, “Oh, we have those. Yup, we have that.”

Well, there is one thing I can tell you from my ‘first hand’ experience. “You can never have enough medical supplies.” I know that my wonderful husband, Nurse Ken, can attest to this as well.

I had four separate areas with dressings that needed to be changed 3 times a day. It is amazing how many 3×3 and other size sterile and non-stick sterile pads, as well as these ‘giant’ sterile Q-tips we went through over the time we were changing these dressings. Not too mention how many alcohol wipes, tape and bandage scissors we went through. Believe me that I learned how important it is to keep these boo boos clean!

So, please rethink your medical supplies. Will that one box of 25, 3×3 pads be enough in a collapse? Probably not, definitely not! How about that one box of alcohol swabs and band-aids? I say get more!

Another gem that I’m glad we purchased awhile ago is this first aid manual from the American Red Cross, The American Red Cross First Aid and Safety Handbook. It’s a great general reference, especially if you have older children at home that need a little medical preparation.
