I lucked out. I did a foreclosure on a house who occupant died of terminal illness. The family and medical people had already removed their stuff. So a year later, here I am, with boxes and boxes and boxes of medical supplies. Not just band aids, but sponges, wound dressings, bandages and gauze wraps, Lidocaine patches, first aid ointments, iodine, hypodermic needles (still sealed), mercury thermometers, and a whole lot more. I put together a first aid station using the bathroom closet. The whole closet is full of medical supplies. The only thing I need now is a surgical kit.

Put the lido patches in a zip lock or vac pac or they will dry out. Also remember some people have an allergy to lidocaine. Why can't I find a find like that. I have way to much tied up in my medical. If you have any questions hit me up in my in box.

Thanks Doc! As an LEO I do many forclosures and evictions where people leave behind unimaginable gold mines for a prepper. I come home with some good stuff. The medical foreclosure loaded me up!
