The thing about accidents, they are something we can’t plan for, or can we?
Recently I had an accident that required me to be taken to Hospital by Ambulance.
Not-withstanding arriving by ambulance, an interminable amount of time was spent waiting in the Accident and Emergency Department before being admitted. Perhaps naively I had hoped that the issue would be dealt with as an outpatient so I had not come prepared for what would eventually be a week in hospital.
Hospitals are almost timeless and allow you a lot of time to think. I kept remembering my grandmother telling me as a child to always wear clean underwear in case you were ever in an accident. So at least that was covered.
However, if you ever find yourself in this predicament, here are a few things I would suggest you bring and consider, especially if you live alone. As these will help to improve the quality of your stay.
Hopefully you will never be in this position, but these small things will make an unexpected emergency stay much more comfortable and much less stressful.
Take care of yourselves folks. Hopefully you won’t need it.
