Having a first-aid kit at home is essential, so you can respond to emergencies and common injuries promptly. What items should you include in your first-aid kit? Our pharmacy in Wayne, New Jersey, offers first-aid essentials for your home use.
- The Basics
First, stock up on wound care supplies. You can get them from our medical supply store. These items include bandages, adhesive tapes, cotton balls or swabs, hand sanitizers, antibiotic ointments, and antiseptic solutions.
