    Fire retardant bibs for smokers.

    The way the test tube would heat up after you put in the clinitest tablet to check sugar in urine. Not really something one should multitask...I don't know how many test tube I dropped and broke because I held it too close to the bottom.

    Cleaning inner cannulas of Jackson trachs. Brush and bowls were from sterile supply closet and H2O2 and sterile water came in big jugs.

    Harris drips for post-op gas relief

    milk and Molasses enemas...and the smell going in vs coming out (gag)

    Being reprimanded for wearing gloves while bathing a newborn because "What will the mother think if you see her baby as "dirty" and refuse to touch it?"

    "Pouring meds". The med room had communal bottles of pretty much every tablet and meds were prepared in soufflé cups nested into a green tray with holes. The med cards for each patient went into a slot above each corresponding cup. Pray like heck that the patient didn't ask what meds they were getting and what each one was for. And heaven help you if you slip and fall while carrying the tray!

    The old saying is that 'NECESSITY is the mother of invention'. I hold that it really is nursing.

    We all have so, so many 'tricks of the trade' that help us overcome difficulties with equipment or lack of supplies. Remember before we had the precut gtube/trach dressings. We would just chevron-type fold 4x4s. And I've made my own Montgomery straps to help secure wound dressings. I just think it's amazing how experience from the 'old days' so freq helps us out in a pinch!

    Anyone remember scultetus (sp?) binders - the old fabric ones?
    Scultetus binders...oh my YES! Bellies that looked like braided bread. The patients seemed to have so much more support though.

    Harris drips for post op ileus with gas pains.

    Wasn't there a span of several years sometime in the late 80's that everyone in the NH seemed to get sprays of granulex to one bony prominence or another? And it stained white uniforms permanently!
