Trauma Kits in schools

 

Heads up on this new law, effective New Years day. All school districts must now have, on hand, a trauma or “stop the bleed” kits.  It requires the kits, or bleeding control stations, to have tourniquets, chest seals, compression bandages, bleeding control bandages, latex-free gloves, scissors, emergency blankets, and markers. This kit must also contain instruction documentsthat details methods to prevent blood loss following a traumatic event. These instructions help readers prioritize which injuries to treat first, and how. It’s up to school officials to determine how many kits are needed, where they should be placed, and how many tourniquets each kit should include. Governor Greg Abbott signed HB 496—unofficially known as the Stop the Bleed® law—requiring all Texas school districts and open enrollment charter schools to have bleeding control stations available on campus. The Stop the Bleed campaign to place bleeding control kits in schools and other public places was borne out of the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. Making bleeding control kits available is an important step in addressing preventable trauma deaths. Exsanguination, that’s bleeding to death, can happen in minutes. Without proper life-saving action, a person can literally bleed out before first responders can arrive. Bleeding control kits equip those already on the scene, turning bystanders into immediate responders. The superintendent of the district or the director of the school can determine the appropriate quantities. Bleeding control kits are for more than the horror of school shootings. The kits help bystanders act quickly and effectively to save lives in more common emergencies—like vehicle accidents, traumatic sports injuries, and classroom or playground accidents. Research shows that bystanders with the right tools, even if they have little or no training, can save lives. Having staff, teachers, and even students trained in using the tools in a bleeding control kit may preventing tragedy in those first minutes before help arrives.
