PSA - Thigh Jab

With all the peanut talk in the news, and knowing so many folks are allergic, this is your twice-yearly reminder to fellow Epi-pen carriers to check the expiration date and replace if necessary!

Nurse Amy would like me to remind you that using an Epi-pen buys you time to get to the ER - you have to go, by ambulance, if you use your pen after exposure to the allergen. As she says, go ahead and skip the ambulance if you have shock paddles and oxygen in your car - otherwise, let the pros handle it.

This has been your public service minute. Carry on.
