I'm a looking for simple, effective, and smart solutions. Pearls of wisdom. I'm a relatively new nurse; home health and then oncology experience, now I'm working Med-Surg. Yep, backwards for some but I'm living my life and I love it! Anyway, at work I was thinking about "little things" that make life easier for nurses, especially when they improve patient care or time management. For example, keeping mini-scissors in your pocket (the hospital I work now keeps them in the room, but of course one room didn't have any); or making a sling out of a pillowcase to elevate yeasty, enlarged scrotums (yes you read that, you're a nurse, get over it); or those nylon tube-things to be able to boost people by yourself. Those are my examples, I would love to hear some of your pearls of wisdom!
