Already opened items (barrier creams, etc.) and a couple of dressing change items -- I would always offer these at discharge.
But the items in the drawers do not "belong" to the patient -- they were stocked there for staff use for caring for the current occupant of that bed.
Sorry if my question seemed repetitive. The opened barrier cream was pretty much a no-brainer.. but yeah, I was a little shocked they were loading up on other things. It was my first discharge and I was kind of on my own and not sure of the protocol. The nurse I was working w/ that day just kind of shrugged when I asked her after the fact. Thanks!

I, personally, thought the commercial was funny. but knowing it smells of the honest truth? i've sent pt's home with the one time items, with 2 days of dressing changes, but that's really it. I've put my foot down on other requests for things. we hardly keep any supplies in common areas due to this.
