An OLD Nurse shared her advice on what to do in the unfortunate event your child gets burned.
And she says following expert advice can help save their lives, as she reveals the number one home hazards that lead to fire accidents.
Beki, who has worked in the healthcare industry, explains that acting quickly is important, as she shares the bestin an incident.
And she says she’s also had her first experience as a parent, as her 18-month-old son had previously spilled her own cup of hot tea.
She explains: “I’m about to share with you something that will save your child’s life.
“The lack of knowledge people have about what to do if a child gets burned is astounding.”
In the video posted to her TikTok account, Beki, who can be found at @beki.guntacontinues: “I will tell you exactly what to do if you or your child gets burned.
“The most common burns we’ve seen are from tea, coffee and 2-minute noodles – yes, 2-minute noodles.
“The first thing you need to do is call an ambulance and then you need to undress your child – leave them completely naked.”
Once this is done, it’s important to put them in the shower “or under running cold running water for a minimum – minimum – for 20 minutes.”
Beki warns: “Don’t take them out – let the water run continuously and you will burn them.
“They will scream, they will cry, it will be freezing cold, but you know what, you will save their lives.”
That’s because Beki says water not only “stops bleeding” but also helps relieve pain.
And Beki says that while it may seem unnatural to keep doing this in tears, it’s important for them to recover.
The former nurse later said: “This is so important and it upsets me so much that no one knows what to do in case their child gets burned.
“If I hadn’t, my baby would have had such scars and now he doesn’t even have a single mark on him.
“These are significant burns and now he has nothing left on him.”
Then Beki emphasizes again that there is no other myth, like butter orwill help, as she puts it: “Twenty minutes of cold running water.
“Don’t put it in a bucket, don’t put ice, don’t do anything like that – the only thing you need to do is keep the running water cold until the ambulance arrives.
“And this is for adults too – this is for all burns.”
