Where do you keep chest tube clamps?

  1. 0 Where do you guys keep your chest tube clamps and vaseline dressing in the patients room? I just want to get a few ideas, I am working on a clinical project to standardize the location on my unit. There are about 5 different areas in the patients room where the clamps tend to land unfortunately, I want to come up with a standard place. Any thoughts?

    We put the vaseline gauze and the foam tape inside a ziplock bag, and hang it on the IV pole with the clamps. We also put a tab of tape on the chest tube line and attach a pair of clamps to it right on the line itself.
