Did you know that 1 in 5 patients are readmitted within 30 days of a hospital discharge? The care you take at home after leaving the hospital for conditions, surgeries or injuries is crucial to proper healing. You never know when someone in your household will end up injured or in need of a procedure and the worst time to stock up on home care products is after they are needed and you are in the middle of recuperating at home. Being prepared with simple, common health items can make a difference in the patients healing from post childbirth to wound repairs.
Cardinal Health has the Hospital quality in-home products you can pick up and have on hand for the return home after such hospital visits that require after care. Below are a few common items that could help in the healing in huge ways.
- Instant Hot & Cold Packs: these can be kept in the first aid cabinet and when a cold or hot pack is needed, you simply shake and activate the heat or cold that lasts 30 minutes. Great to grab in a hurry and use on the way into a clinic when an injury occurs. It should last the car ride in until you get some more medical attention for that split lip or knee.
- Vinyl Exam Gloves: When infection or blood flows, you do not want to contaminate. Whether the injury is fresh or you are in post-hospital wound care stage the gloves will keep you and family members free of fluid contact.
- Wound Cleanser: If dirt and debris finds your wounds, you can use this safe wound cleaner to keep it clean
- Transparent Dressing Bandages: Some wounds need more than that Star Wars bandage in the kids first aid pack! The transparent dressing gives great coverage of a wider area and can be worn up to 7 days.
You can pick up Cardinal Health products at Amazon.com and if you live in Wa. State or the Midwest, you will find them at Bartell Drugstores and Meijer Pharmacy’s.
