The perfect bag

I have a bag I used for home health visits for years but with times changing as they are, I need to upgrade. I'll now be hauling around a laptop and work phone in addition to my nursey things, so rather than a home health bag and a laptop briefcase I'd love to just have one. I need room for some files and a planner or something too, I'm sure. Anyone have a bag they love?

Nurses Bags & Totes

I am seriously considering forking over the money for this bag. I work in home health and go through several company provided bags per year. This one looks well worth the money.

Organizing Utility Tote in Citrus Medallion | Thirty-One Gifts THIS is the perfect bag. I have gone through several and this one is a keeper. You can find them cheaper on ebay btw. If anyone is interested in seeing how I actually use it for nursing gear I can try to figure out how to post a picture.

Yes to the pictures! :)

I also use a organizing tote by Thirty-One and it works perfect. The Cindy Tote by Thirty-One is perfect for binders filled with 485s, education, etc. :)

I have the hopkins bag but find that putting my computer in the bag or any bag, makes it too heavy. I just carry my laptop by it's self, like a book. Just a thought. Take care of your Back.

I also don't put my laptop in the bag but carry it in it's own protective cover

I prefer to let my employer purchase the bag they believe will meet the requirements of the job. If I find something unsatisfactory about their choice I let them know what the deficiency is and why it is a problem.

The organizing utility tote by ThirtyOne doesn't close on top. I do not believe that it would pass a CHAP survey, if your agency is CHAP accredited.
