I've been mostly "lurking" around the boards these last few years as a CNA/CMA and nursing student, and now I am finally an LPN!
I just got offered a job in Home Health working with technology-dependent peds. I'm excited to get started in a job that will give me experience as well as flexibility as I continue on with schooling.
My question is...while I have worked in home health before it was as a companion -- no certifications -- and I never thought to bring anything with me aside from the required paperwork. I have a nursing bag and stethoscope from school from school, and was going to get a sphygmomanometer (though maybe I'd need 2 for different sizes? My patients can be up to 21 years of age) and a thermometer. What items do you all take to your assignments?
