- 0Nov 16, '98 by KTBDoes anyone have a really effective but simple way of keeping track of their equipment? We often have IV poles, pumps, w/c's, B/P cuffs, thermometers, sat machines, etc. growing legs and walking off. We are trying to think of a good way the CNA's can keep track of the equipment on a shift-to-shift basis. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
