Camp Accident…

I was sitting in the FAC Shack (which is what we call the health center that First Aid Consultants such as myself hang out in) when I noticed a horrible accident take place.  It appeared our patient had broken his arm!

The other caregiver and I quickly leapt into action.  We stabilized the patient’s arm, and then immobilized it with a well constructed splint.  To make our patient comfortable, we slung the arm in a sling improvised from a bandana.  The patient was then placed comforably in bed, where he was allowed to recuperate.

Doesn’t our patient look happier now that we’ve worked on him?

The camp nurse’s daughter Emmy and I got bored…and this was the result.  Melissa was thrilled too!
