I was going to post this in the Nursing with Disabilities forum, but I don't think of my diabetes as a disability so I couldn't do it
If this is in the wrong spot, my apologies!
I wear a pump - absolutely love it, and it's the only thing that keeps my blood sugar in check. I'm working as a CNA now and I'm in an RN program. I work with dementia patients, so I'm always afraid my tubing will peek out and a confused patient will grab it. It's happened once, and another time it snagged on a wheelchair handle. Luckily nothing happened, other than some soreness. My pump is too heavy to hook on my scrub pants so I've been clipping it to my underwear. I tried belts beneath my clothes but ended up getting a bruise from it, plus access to it was more difficult.
Anyone else wearing a pump? If so, how do you keep it secured? I use the 23in tubing. I've seen some fanny pack type belts to hold it in but I think they'd be too bulky while I'm working. I need some way to keep it secured without it pulling my pants down :chuckle
Thanks for any input! I appreciate it.
