Modern hospitals have revolutionized the way people seek care and stay healthy. But what if you’re somewhere where easy access to a hospital isn’t available? Do you just lay down and die? Of course not; you make do with what you’ve got. In many cases, this could be a medical tent staffed by doctors. If this is where you’re at, here are three items for preparing a medical tent for things like events or emergency medical intervention.
Just because you’re out of the traditional hospital setting doesn’t mean you should be cutting corners on equipment. Scrubs, in particular, are something necessary for keeping both your patients and yourself healthy while you do your work. High end scrubs are needed for this, especially the kind designed with antibacterial or antimicrobial features like silver-woven fabric.
There is never a time when you can have too many antibiotics in a medical tent. Yes, their overuse is a problem, but this is one of the few times when prescribing them frequently is actually for the best. Given the limitations of a medical tent, cleanliness can only go so far. In order to ensure people who you’ve taken care of don’t simply come down with an infection, antibiotics will be necessary as an aftercare measure.
No, not for drinking but sanitation. Just like antibiotics, alcohol for sanitizing both patients and your tools is a major necessity when working on people outside of a traditional hospital setting. Without it, you’ll be left just hoping for the best as you’re forced to reuse equipment that hasn’t been properly sanitized. It’s not a situation you want to be in, so stock up. A little goes a long way, too.
There are many scenarios in which you might be in charge of stocking a non-hospital medical facility like a medical tent. Prepare for the worst by ensuring that your facility has these three items in abundance to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.
