As a physician, I know all too well the feeling of being caught off guard when a loved one comes to us with a laceration. We have the skills to repair it, but often don’t have the supplies on hand to properly close the wound. That’s why I created Prepared Physician laceration repair kits – to ensure that you’re always ready for the unexpected.
These hospital-grade, disposable, and sterile kits are designed to manage a variety of wound types, including the scalp, facial, body, multi-layer lacerations, skin tears, abscesses, and more. Each component is individually packaged, so you can order refill packs to replace only what you’ve used without having to purchase a whole new kit.
Think about it – how often have you found yourself in a situation where you had to take a lacerated loved one to the ER, wasting valuable time and money? Not only does this cost an average of $200 to $3,000 or more, according to Cost Helper, Inc, but it also means hours spent traveling to and from the hospital, waiting in the waiting room and exam room, only to watch someone else do what you could have easily done at home.
As a physician, I understand the concern over liability and the importance of exercising good judgment. However, the chances of being sued by a loved one are slim, and the opportunity to show our families what we do as physicians is a great one.
At Prepared Physician, we offer four great kits, including our most popular Complete Laceration Repair Kit, which contains Dermabond, sutures, skin stapler, Steri-Strips, needles, drapes, irrigation, and all the supportive materials that you need for laceration management. You can also add on lidocaine, additional sutures, and Dermabond staplers. And with our refill packs, you never have to purchase a whole new kit again.
By purchasing a Prepared Physician laceration repair kit, you’ll save money and time and have peace of mind knowing that you’re always prepared.
