Dressing Changes- part one

I have been wanting to do a post (with pictures) on how we do dressing changes to give other EB families ideas for their own set up.

  here is the area as a whole

gauze opened and tubifast  pre-cut to size (keeps the gauze in place)

 lancets to pop the blisters:(

 ointment we use on his wounds

 all his bandages pre-cut.  we spend 1 day a week pre-cutting 7-10 days worth of bandages;  it saves SO much time each day.  He is still wrapped from the chest down so the pieces don't change much, other than when he grows and we need larger pieces.  I take all the backs off the bandages right before we start the bath so everything is ready to go.  It makes things much quicker especially when I am by myself! 

 where he gets his bath

 what we use to wash him with

 the typical amount of towels, blankets, clothes, tubifast that needs to be washed when we are done with a bath/dressing change

 this is his typical amount of supplies he receives each month.  the top box is his g-tube supplies; the HUGE box is his wound care supplies (the cat likes to smell the boxes)

these two are pictures of where we keep SOME of his supplies.  It is the items we use daily, the rest are scattered through the house behind furniture and under things:)
