Ok, this may seem like a stupid question, but how do you carry your PDA in your scrub pockets & keep it from falling out?
I have a hard case with a belt clip but the weight of it would cause it to fall out a lot when i would bend over. (Maybe it is as easy of using proper body mechanics and not bend over at the waist.)
Anyone ever have this problem?
I never put it in the upper pockets because it falls out constantly when I do vitals, empty foley bags, etc. I stick in a pocket I have on the side of my pants, like on a pair of jeans. The one I can just slip my hands into, oh-so-casually. And I am always sticking my hand in there to make sure it is STILL in there, just in case. It's valuable, ya know! LOL
Mine is usually in my pants pocket, or in the pocket inside my lab coat since it has a velcro closure. You could sew in a little velcro if you don't have other better pockets.
I also have a hard side case, it would probably be trash by now without it :)

I intentionally buy scrubs with cargo pockets on the legs. I too have a hard case and it doesn't slip out. I also have a pair of pants that have a snap on the cargo pant's pocket and I like them best of all.
i usually carry mine in my cargo pocket and it doesn't fall out... i also wear a lot of fleece vests with zipper pockets where i can safely carry it without worrying about it... thank goodness for the hard case, though, because i've already dropped it a few times...
