- Feb 13 by sks0730I know this is an old post I am actually dealing with the same question. Could you use Sterile saline, normal saline, or sterile water without on order for a larger wound, like to flush anything out?
- Feb 13 by JolieOur district doesn't keep those items on hand. If any "flushing" is needed, it's accomplished with running water.
- Feb 13 by Spidey's momQuote from JolieThis IS an old thread.Soap and water. Anything else is considered a med by our district and requires medical authorization and parent permission, which I'm not going to get for a playground boo boo.
I agree with Jolie here . . . water is the best bet. We wash out wounds in the ER with soap and water, period.
I'm not messing around to get medical authorization.
- Feb 14 by AdobeRNSoap and water for just about everything. If I don't have access to sink then J&J Hurt free Antiseptic wash.
- Feb 14 by tictacWe aren't allowed to use H202 for wound cleaning. I use soap and water and/or bactine.
