First Aid Check

On Saturday we finished the 2nd part of our First Aid series. Last month Elizabeth talked about preventing infections and healing wounds. This month she talked about burns and what to do/what not to do. The group had me laughing along with them, as we talked about commonly used household goods that are often thought to cure and help burns, like tomato, hot pepper (!) or potato. We not only talked about burns and treatment of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns, but actually practiced our new found skills using different scenarios. This got the group laughing even more, when one of the patients pretended to scream during her wound drama and when water was poured on one of our other patients in the 2nd drama. They all said they wanted to come back next month for First Aid classes, but I think on top of all the new information they received, it is also because they had such a good time with Elizabeth.
