Hi, I'm a new LPN starting my first job as a contract, PRN home health nurse. I have one client so far.
There is no stock supply of items such as gloves, thermometer probe covers or alcohol wipes, etc... we provide everything for ourselves.
What supplies do you recommended keeping a stock pile of in my car... Just incase the client doesn't already have supplies?
I know that I need the basics... Stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, digital thermometer & probe covers, alcohol wipes, gloves, hand sanitizer, accu check machine (maybe if client doesnt have one), hand-held pulse oximeter, etc...
Any other suggestions?
