Turn emergency visits to hospital into “here we go again” situations with a prepacked case. It is so easy to forget items when you are in a panic to find everything required and handling a sick patient too.
Keep a bag filled permanently for hospital visits. This includes pjs, slippers, beanie and other required clothing, single bed doona, pillow, spare toiletries such as goat soap, soft washcloths, wipes, shampoo and conditioner (if you don’t have a hair situation), oral 7 toothpaste and mouthwash, a Keepcup, a spare charger, pen, bag for laundry, etc. Many of these items are included in our Kit for Cancer case.
Also attach a list of essentials that need to be included such as medications, medical records, hydralyte, our journal/diary, credit card, iPhone, laptop etc.
Like travelling, the more you do it you realise the less you need take less and learn what essentials are required
