a home first-aid kit for every household

First aid in an emergency, or when there is no time for a visit to the doctor, or no wish to pay the consultation fee – there are many reasons to be prepared to handle small accidents or sudden ailments at home.

However the problem is: As long as everyone is well, no one thinks of it, and when something happens, sometimes the very thing one needs is lacking. Therefore it is certainly advisable to cast an eye over one’s home first-aid kit from time to time to determine whether it is completely equipped. In particular, the following should be checked:

  • How long can the pharmaceuticals be kept, and which ones will expire in the near future?
  • What can be used to treat colds, headache, diarrhoea and fever?
  • Where is the best place to store a home first-aid kit?

Our recommendation: Take care to store your home first-aid kit in a cool, dry place, protected from the sun. It should be out of reach of children and should include all important telephone numbers (doctor, pharmacist and emergency).

If you would like to have your home first-aid kit checked for completeness, or if you do not yet have a home first-aid kit, it is best to come to your met and let us advise you.
