First Aid Supplies for Nursing Homes and Elderly Care Facilities

 

First Aid Kits: Elderly Care Recommendations
Australian Law requires that you maintain at least one major first aid kit located in the sick bay or designated medical area of your facility.

You will need to store any resident medications separately from the first aid kit including any prescribed or non-prescribed medication provided by a resident guardian/carer or medical professional. We have a range of wall cabinets suited for this.


Stocking Your First Aid Kit
First aid kit contents should meet the first aid requirements for your state.
