Nail polish on stethescope

  1. Hi,

    I have heard several people say to use nail polish to identify their stethescope. Does this work? Will it in any way dimished the quality of the stethescope?

    I would think if you put the nail polish on the metal parts it won't harm it. You could do the same thing with stickers, permanent marker, paint or get your initials engraved.

    It will work. It won't stop some resident or doctor from walking off with your stethoscope though. I'm pretty sure nothing short of duct taping it to your body will do that.

    I uses a DNR bracelet on my stethescope in hopes to change some patients minds.
