Any medics/corpsmen out there?

My wife recently got EMT certified, and is currently in nursing school. she's been asking for a comprehensive kit for the jeep and since she's doing clinicals in the hospital, and we have many firefighter/medical personel friends, i figured i would get her a bag/case and we would put one together to best suit our needs.

I want your input...bag or box? i'm looking at chinook, as it's the first website i've seen that offers what looks to be pretty serious containers. let me know you're opinion on what would be best for a backcountry/offroad kit. I have an interior storage rack in the rear, which is why i was looking at the hard cases. my budget is $200-300. Thanks all and thanks for everything you do.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

It will all depend on how she plans to use the kit. Is it for personal use or does she plan on using it for others as well.

she wants to be able to use it for others since the jeep club hinted at making her the medical officer on trail rides after she's finshed with nursing school. but for now, train me on everything so i can use it on others if need be since she can't bc of Good Samaritan. also found this site. the bags are cheaper, but less choices: https://www.tacmedsolutions.com/stor...?ProductID=211

The problem is liability. You need to look into state laws and your local protocol to see what she is allowed to use in her scope as an EMT in your area. Out of area is a whole other can of worms. I know here in my region, you have to do an oral board to be released to practice in our region (I am a state and Nation Paramedic). EMT basics only have bandaid type authorization. Nurses have NO out of hospital authorization to practice any type of care other than bandaid stuff.

I don't know about liability but as far as box versus bag: Box will protect the contents better. They will stack better. Bags are usually lighter and take up less room (because the offer little protection for the contents). For the most part boxes are also easier to organize, work out of, inventory and restocking easier.

There are some bags that will allow you to organize as well as a box but they are usually specific to whatever you are using them for and are probably not much less than buying the box.

The other thing I forgot to mention is that the good samaratin law covers you as non medically trained person. It does not cover her.

You need to look up and read the GS act for your area, and know the about "a duty to act" the GS act is looked at and read differently. and it is a not a total coverage for a stupid act. the best coverage is to remove your self from the situation "kinda crappy" or to get the training and make good well thought out trained decisions. IE don't get into something you have no idea about.

In the other thread you said that you're an EMT-B? In Utah that makes you a medical professional and not covered under GS.

Edit: Wasn't you. Disregard. Carry on.
