First aid For home and kids
Last Sunday, everyone was at home. Neeta was busy in cooking tasty dishes as per the demand of every family member. At that time, children were busy in riding bicycle. When her younger daughter screamed after falling from the cycle, Neeta burnt her finger in fear.
She ran to the kids and found her younger daughter with wounds on the left knee and also banging on her forehead. Then, she brought her first aid kit and wiped the wounds with antiseptic lotion. She also applied medicine on the wound.
In this helter skelter, she forgot about her. When she felt the burning sensation in her fingers, she searched for antiseptic cream for burn. But, it was not in her first aid kit. At the very moment, she remembered about the first aid training given in her office by just for hearts, the corporate wellness company.
First aid kit is such a thing, every house hold should keep. The aims of the first aid kit are to
- prevent illness or injury from getting worse.
- reduce pain, if possible.
- preserve life.
- promote recovery.
- protect the unconscious.
