Medical Snake Bite Training

Before the boarders returned, boarding staff were treated to a training session on dealing with snake bites, led by Nurse Aon. We learned what the latest advice and guidance was, what to do and what not to do; for example, the advice previously was to attempt to capture the snake that bit the person, so that the hospital could administer the correct anti-venom. However this is now considered dangerous as the snake could bite again, so now we are advised to just take a picture of the snake if possible. We learned about the locations of the snake bite kits around the Boarding campus, and we also covered some basic first aid.

Fortunately, snake bites are not common! However, as carers for the boarders, it is always useful to know what to do in uncommon situations.
