The Nursing pen is not public property. For many Nurses, once we get a pen that is reliable, we protect it at all costs. Physicians are notorious for "stealing" a Nurse's pen. I found one way to stop this if I use one with a cap. If anyone asks to borrow the pen, I take off the cap first and give it to them. No one wants to pocket a pen without a cap. It's messy.
How do you ensure that your favorite pen doesn't conveniently get "lost"?
