PDA with...Pepid CRC on it...I use mine at least 100 x per day. Very useful resource for anyone working in the ER.
Why do you use Pepid CRC? Pepid says that is their Clinical Rotation Companion for physicians on clinical rotation? Wouldn't Pepid Critical Care Nursing Suite make more sense for an ED RN? Or if you wanted physician realted material then how about Pepid ED for "ED physicians"?
The reason I ask is I have Pepid RN for Students and I will be doing a preceptorship in the ED soon and I have been thinking of adding a module for ED work and wondered about your thoughts on the various offerings for RNs in the ED.

• Alcohol prep pads.
•*Ink pen. Very specific about ink pens.
Always one - carry more than one, I always seem to lose them!!!
• Index cards. Blank.
• 10 ml syringe (empty)/access device/18 g needle
• Powder compact/mirror
• Cell phone
Stethoscope clipped to waist - ID badge on quick release around neck.
I have my "trauma" shears on a retractable release pin on my waist or jacket.
No PDA for me. No drug books - too heavy. Know where the reference manuals are in your unit if you really need 'em.
Oh yeah! And a smile is a "must have"!
Good Luck! Practice SAFE!
