    Welllllll, you're not the one that gets to decide how many I need. If I wish everyone to know what university I went to and that I am a Steelers fan, or if I just think they are purty, I will be having me two badge reels and changing them whenever I feel like it!

    Oh, and note to those talking about how much they harbor bacteria...I can't recall ever cleaning the actual badge reel. Sorry if that's gross. But this goes right up there in my book with wearing scrubs to a store after work. Those germs really aren't much more exciting than the germs that are on my shopping cart handle from the last crumb muncher that put their mouth all over it while sitting in the cart.

    As for the fabric ones, if I had one I'd wear it until it became soiled or I felt like it had enough germs on it, then get another one. I can't believe anyone would attempt to dictate a BADGE REEL. They don't how many times a nurse wore their SCRUBS before washing them, do they? Is there a policy on that? Yes, it's common sense and just plain disgusting, but somewhere there is a staff member who doesn't wash their scrubs on every wearing. Is there a policy to come to work in freshly laundered scrubs? If they're not dictating the clothing that covers my entire body, I don't see a 1.5 inch in diameter badge reel as a huge threat to public safety.
    And this attitude is why MRSA is an epidemic.

    That too, but other actions which ignore IC measures help spread ick all around.
    Jewelry, pins, headbands, badge holders, nail polish, fake nails........all these things that some nurses seem to not be able to live without sometimes....all carry germs around. And not only patient to patient but home to your family too. Maybe I'm a germaphobe, but I always thought my patients safety was more important than my need for bling and bedazzling.

    The Rosie the riveter badge I picked out that says we can cure it and is in pink is referencing to breast cancer, hygiene queen.
    Interesting.
    I have just never seen her used in reference to that.
    That is all.

    I'm talking like a tshirt with NIKE across the chest...or pants with "Juicy" across the butt.

    I can understand the skeleton. I wasn't thinking when I posted this. It represents death to well. But I don't see a problem with wearing the Rosie the riveter one or the others as long as I got the ones without the crystals. I think you should be able to portray your personality a little.
    Absolutely! Rosie the riviter is cool....

    I bet my badge reel is responsible for at least 32 infections.
