- Aug 31, '12 by LunahRNTrauma shears, steth (around neck), blue pens, a highlighter (to highlight completed orders), alcohol preps, 2x2s, tape... and my patrol cap in case I need to go outside quickly. My patrol cap is one fashion accessory we Army folks are not supposed to be missing while outdoors.

I like to keep it minimal:
Our ED has all the tapes, alcohol wipes, gauze, tegaderm and other small supplies at each bedside on the wall. Each room has an otoscope so no need for pen light. At the beginning of my career, I carried around EVERYTHING, including reference books... I tried a fanny pack for a bit, but didn't like the feel of it. So, slowly I discarded the unnecessary and kept the essential.
- Sep 5, '12 by KyPinkRNThis is almost exactly what I have in my pockets... except I always have a few alcohol swabs. I have found that they are quite adequate for jotting down a set of vitals. Plus I'm not wasting paper cause as soon as I chart said vitals I can use the alcohol swab
- Sep 23, '12 by EDnurse1963stethescope with tape do-hickey attached, NS flush and a few prep pads, nitro tabs and Duo-Neb, sharpie and one or two "clicky-pens". one dollar for vending machine on no lunch days
- Sep 26, '12 by stephynic21--at least five black pens (and I'll be lucky if i end the day with two. I am notorious for leaving them laying around)
--Stethoscope around my neck
--Badge with 3m tape ran thru my badge clip and ammonia capsule taped to the back
--Eye drops (the dreaded contact dry eye is enough to ruin a day)
--alcohol preps and two flushes
And by the end of the day some patient labels, SL NTG, and the list on the back of a 2x2 that i make first thing in the morning while stocking my rooms usually end up there.

Neither. I wear Aviator Scrubs - Classic shirt, ER pants. They're comfy, last forever, and are the source of one of my two department nicknames, "Pockets."
