Following an Ambulance During an Emergency
According to the EMT, the best course of action is to watch the ambulance leave (after confirming where it is heading), take a breath, gather your thoughts for a minute or two and then pack a hospital bag in the event you or your loved one will be there overnight. This serves the dual purpose of clearing your head while ensuring you have essential items that may be needed. While not exhaustive, this list is a good start on what to pack:
- sweatshirt/sweat pants (hospitals are very cold)
- phones AND chargers (critically important to keep others updated once you are there)
- toiletries (including lip balm – hospitals are very dry)
- hearing aids, glasses, contact lens/solution (look around the bathroom for the morning routine items)
- Patient’s ID & health insurance card
- Patient’s medication list

Lion’s Choice Bacon Ice Cream / Labor Day!
At Rana Law Group, we all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Tarun was unable to camp at Table Rock Lake this year since the campsites were all booked up by people looking to get outside. Not to worry because he moved the annual “Camp Endos” (End of Summer) camping trip up a few weeks so he could still tent camp at Table Rock Lake, while keeping alive a nine year tradition. He still spent plenty of time outside in the sun and enjoying the water! Sarah spent time with her family and even had a chance to go ballooning! Below are pictures from the office pre-Labor Day celebration where we tried the Lion’s Choice collaboration with Crown Candy Kitchen, the “Heart Stopping Bacon Concrete”. It was AMAZING and extra crunchy! If this sounds even remotely enticing, get to Lion’s Choice by September 13 to try it out!
