...that I would have to worry about someone stealing my stethoscope!!! I worked at another campus of my hospital (same unit, ICU) a couple of weeks ago and put my stethoscope on the counter where I was sitting...got up for a moment and a doc took my chair
(which is annoying) and totally forgot about it. It was almost time to go home, so all my assessments were done for the night...I did not realize I left it there until 2 days later when I went to assess a patient. I immediately called over there and no one had seen it...of course. I asked so many people, and went back over there to look, but alas, it was not there. The most annoying thing to me is that I did not have my name on it:selfbonk: This stethoscope was a graduation gift from my parents, so it is extra sad. I hope whoever has it, is enjoying it and really really needed it.
Thanks...needed to vent!

It's not just stethoscopes, either. One day a resident handed me a pair of scissors to cut some tape. I cut it and out them in my pocket. "Hey, where's my scissors?" sez he. And I said "They're mine. See, they have my name on them." He sort of slunk out of the room.
