    Cute nurse 17. I am in HH for about 1 year now. I did ER nursing for 30 years.Had enough of hospitals. I love HH very much.The HH agency I work for set us up with plastic bins with all supplies we needed. Hopefully yours will. Things you need: BP cuff, stethascope,thermometer are esential. A sleeve of non sterile 4x4 , paper tape,2x2 . telfa pads (non stick) tegaderm all sizes, ns ,tao, sterile 4x4 , drug book,plastic bins with extra papers that your HH uses.bandage sissors.If possible foams adhesive, hydrocolloid,kerlix.kling.alcohol wipes ,hand sanitizer,lab supplies,foley's . My trunk looks like the stock room in the hospital.But I have it .When I get a call to do something.
