Is your mobile office tidy and organized, or is it a heaping mess? Any brave souls willing to share pictures?
I start a new job in a few weeks and would love some ideas about how to set up my SUV!!!

Well, I admit it...Mine is a horrible mess!!! I had an SUV--Kia Sorrento--and just traded it in last weekend, so I know very well how big a mess it was! I have 2 plastic bins, filled with supplies such as oral syringes, tape, wound care, chux, gait belts, etc. I also carry several of those recycle grocery bags. One has urinary supplies (catheters, bags, leg straps, etc); one has emesis basins, urinals, bedpans; one has assorted wound care dressings; and one has skin care supplies, soaps, creams, etc. I also carry printer paper, more diapers and chux stuffed into corners! I carry a small portable fan, (some homes don't have a/c in Florida and it gets hot!) a camping chair and a laptop lap desk. I also carry my own flat sheet (just to cover a chair or sofa I have to sit on that may be less than desirable. And bug spray (for the obvious!) my back seat carries assorted fast food wrappers and drink cups that are tossed over my shoulder! Front passenger seat has my rolling suitcase with my work laptop and portable printer and extension cords along with various electric adapters so I can plug in. Then the floorboard carries my personal rolling suitcase with my personal computer, Kindle Fire, internet card and my food and drink for the night! Yep, it's a mess and I have to clean everything out tomorrow and put in the new car before my shift tomorrow night. I also have to say, I work 12 hour night shifts in Crisis Care. I don't want to get stuck out in the middle of the night without supplies that I need for the patient!! I also carry the much needed vitals kit, gloves, sharps containers, backup syringes, documentation sheets (just in case my laptop crashes) and just darn near anything I might possibly need!!
