Pediatric Home Health Supplies

  1. 0
    I know there are many post regarding what supplies a typical home health nurses needs, but i just wanted a list of ideas in one location that I can easily find.

    I'm on a time crunch and just need a few ideas of what to buy before I head to the store. I am currently doing shift work (8-12 hours) and I haven't come across any homes that don't already have needed supplies, but there was a time where a few things ran out as my shift was over (lucky me). I would just like to be prepared just in case I'm not so lucky next time.

    All ideas and suggestions are welcome. I don't have a good bag to carry my stuff so any suggestions of those would also be nice.

    Here are some of the things that I bring to each house:

    Gloves (I was at a house once where they ran out and thankfully I had some with me)
    Extra paperwork (agency specific)
    2-3 Pens minimum
    Water bottle (for me)
    Extra blank paper (for reports, extra info, etc)
    Charging cable for my phone
    Snacks that don't need a fridge
    Stethoscope
    Pulse Oximeter
    Thermometer
    Mace (depends on the area)
    Clorox wipes
    Extra hair ties
    Hand sanitizer

    I know there's more that I bring, but it depends on the house. I have one family that has a shower and they want me to wear flip flops in it. I bring extra socks to that house because I hate putting on dirty socks. Also, I bring my own equipment (pulse ox & thermometer especially) but most houses have those.
