Take Care

Summertime brings more outdoor events, vacations and physical activities. With that fun comes an increased risk for accidents and injuries. Be prepared with a well-stocked first aid kit.

Adam Walthall, RN, an injury prevention coordinator at Medical City Lewisville, suggests adding the following to the basics in your first aid kit and shares why:

  • Antihistamines
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Sterile tweezers
  • Instant ice packs
  • Ear drops
  • Aloe vera
  • An index card with emergency numbers

For more information, call our Ask a Nurse hotline 24/7 or use Find a Doctor online.

At Medical City Healthcare, we’re dedicated to the care and improvement of human life. So we hope you’ll Take Care!
