Updated to an Emergency Box!

Do you remember the original emergency bag post from 2012? 
It is the most popular post from this blog!

AND ... for years I've promised an update, but 
as a busy school nurse the promised, updated blog post 
kept getting pushed to the back burner.

I finally took a few minutes to take a picture of my current emergency bag! 
That's right, it's not actually a bag- it is a BOX!

I still keep it on a shelf in my office for easy grab-n-go access.
I still have the same supplies as before, BUT
the supplies are nicely organized by like items in this box.

I've used pencil storage cases and made labels for each!
Need fancy labels?  These are printed from my computer 
onto regular paper then taped to the pencil boxes!

Even though the box itself is more cumbersome to carry than a bag,
I prefer having all like items neatly organized and labeled!

The pencil boxes are large enough that I can keep folded copies of
specific emergency action plans inside too! 
So far this new option has been working out great.

Hang tight for another update- 
in eight years or so :)

I do not carry an AED with me to emergencies because 
there are seven located in various areas throughout the school.
Many school nurses (including myself) need standing orders for the emergency items mentioned above!

  1. As far as the EAP's, are they for students or just general EAPs? If student EAP's do you carry their rescue medications or just use what you have with you?
