DRUG EXPIRATION DATES AND SURVIVAL

AS A MEDIC, YOU MIGHT ONE DAY HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER TO ADMINISTER AN EXPIRED MEDICATION. WHAT’S YOUR PLAN?

In a disaster, especially a long-term collapse, the family medic must be able to handle many emergencies. Some of these are clearly survivable, such as a broken finger, and some are not, such as a bullet to the brain. A realistic attitude toward this hard fact won’t make decision-making easier, but it might make it clearer.

Your goal as the sole medical asset in an austere setting is to prevent the avoidable deaths.

One significant way to accomplish this is to pay strict attention to prevention. The medic’s responsibilities include making sure water is properly sterilized, food is prepared safely, and activities of daily survival are performed with appropriate clothing and protective gear. This will avoid a lot of headaches and greatly increase your chance of success when everything else fails.

Another way to keep your people healthy is to have medications and supplies to deal with the issues you’ll encounter as a medic. Bandages, antibiotics, pain relievers and numerous other items will be important in your mission to keep people healthy. But what happens when these items expire?

Before I begin, I want to tell you that my focus is medical preparedness for major disasters and long-term survival. This means a strategy of putting together stockpiles of supplies that might save a life in times of trouble. In normal times, when you can just call your doctor for a fresh prescription, you should seek out modern care by qualified professionals.
