Discover a wide range of the most reliable first aid kits and essential medical supplies for nursing homes and elderly care within Australia and New Zealand.
To comply with the law, all nursing homes and elderly care facilities must guarantee that first aid supplies are readily available at all times.
A first aid kit for seniors living at home, or in aged-care facilities provides vital assistance for some of the most vulnerable people in our community, and is a detail that should not be overlooked.
What supplies need to be in a first aid kit for elderly care?
Seniors often encounter many medical problems in the home, such as burns, choking, cuts and scrapes, muscle sprains, heart attacks, heat strokes, and hypothermia. Sometimes even small injuries like a bump or fall may necessitate special attention in the elderly due to weaker bones and slower wound response.
The first aid kits we stock are equipped to cover most common injuries. However, you may still need additional supplies, or specialty first aid supplies, especially if you run a nursing home for aged-care. These items may include adhesive bandages designed for thin skin, a thermometer, a blood pressure monitor, emergency medications, a blood sugar meter, or an AED.
You will also want to double-check that essential information like emergency contacts and prescription schedules are included in your first aid kit.
Make sure to store the first aid kit somewhere it can be immediately accessed in an emergency, and inspect it on a regular basis to update emergency information and replace any empty or expired supplies.
