Going to the dentist can be stressful. What can happen? What if something goes wrong and there is an emergency? Rest assured all practicing dentists are licensed under the Canadian Dental Association which regulates emergency preparedness in their Clinic. All dental professionals are required to participate in annually or bi-annually CRP training as well as being equipped with the right medical emergency medications. This is where LIGHTHOUSE plays an important role.
LIGHTHOUSE is a brand owned by HANSAmed limited. LIGHTHOUSE is part of our emergency preparedness line that assures clinics are current and up to date with emergency preparedness medications according to their governing body requirements.
When clinics purchase a LIGHTHOUSE medical emergency kit, it comes with all necessary items and equipment to overcome a basic medical emergency within the clinic as well as assurance to both the patient and the clinician.
HANSAmed’s automatic replenishment program with LIGHTHOUSE kits ensures that all of the life-saving medications are up to date, safe, and ready to use in the case of an emergency situation in the dental office. As the patient, this gives you peace of mind and assurance during every visit to your dental clinic.
Each medication in the emergency kit holds a different expiration date. For a dental professional, it is hard to track these dates to keep them current as they are busy with other priorities within their practice. To help clinics in this respect, HANSAmed Limited takes on this responsibility. In addition to HANSAmed Limited selling the medical emergency kit, we track each individual medication in the kit, monitor the expiration dates and replenish the medication prior to expiration. This ensures the kit it current and up to date should it ever be needed in an emergency situation.
Each medical emergency kit is part of a batch production which has a unique batch code. This code helps HANSAmed Limited in tracking each clinics expiration date. This also helps in case there is a drug recall. A drug recall is the most effective way to protect the public from a defective or potentially harmful product. A recall is a voluntary action taken by a company at any time to remove a defective drug product from the market.

Expired medication: HANSAmed Limited strongly believes in waste management and is part of a waste management program to help keep our environment safe. It is not recommended to flush expired medications or throw them in the regular garbage either. On that note, HANSAmed Limited provides the dental clinic with a drug disposal box that is to be shipped to our head office to dispose of the medications properly. HANSAmed Limited proudly donates $1 of every drug disposal sale to support pharmaceutical waste programs.
