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