Safeguarding Meds during a Power Outage

Safeguarding Medications During Power Outages:

If when power goes out take note of the time the power went out. put any and all meds in the freezer. keep freezer and refrigerator doors closed. if power outage continues for more than 24 hours remove meds and put them on dry ice.
when the power comes black on, temperature of the refrigerator should be recorded I would recommend to add a refrigerator thermometer to your list of essentials that you would keep in the house. ………………From the PSP Health Files……..stay safe and stay informed.~Khadijah J. Shakur RN~
