What do you carry your gear to clinicals in? - page 4
Right now my gear is just loose in my backpack, the last thing I want to do is jack it up. Have you found a safer, better way to carry it? Do they make bags just for BP cuff, stethoscope, pen light, ect?... Read More

I feel like an idiot. Also, even if we go at 11pm the night before half the time the patients have been discharged by 6am the next day so all that time spent doing paperwork is wasted. At least I only have to go for one of my two clinicals this semester. We'll see what happens next semester.
Ah, that would be nice! This year we aren't allowed to go early or the night before. The theory being that we can't do that as a nurse, so we need to get used to it now. In theory, it makes sense. In practice, it's annoying!
- 0Oct 11, '13 by krisiepooI keep all my clinical supplies in a pastic bag in my glove compartment and then take it out and put it in my pockets or around my neck before clinicals. Why in gods name are you needing to bring a BP cuff into a hospital!? I had a small notebook, black pen, watch, stethescope, chapstick and my name badge. If I brought my clinical papers in I folded them lengthwise and put them in my pants pocket. less is better
