Band-Aid Treatment

(redirected from Band Aid Treatment)

Band-Aid Treatment

Informal; a remedy for the appearance of a problem rather than a solution to the problem itself. For example, if a company is having cash flow problems, it may borrow, rather than take any concrete steps to increase collections or sales. While Band-Aid treatments may be inevitable in the short term, they generally do not resolve any problems and may ultimately make matters worse. The name refers to the trademark for a brand of adhesive bandages.
