What is in your OT pockets?
I love my scrub pockets.
They are so useful. Sometimes I almost have more things in my pockets than some of our nurses!
Chest pocket: pen, post-it notes, alcohol prep wipes (for wiping sunglasses, clean-up for taking manual blood pressures, giving them to nurses who need them to D/C IVs)
Left side pocket: gloves (lots of them), daily caseload/schedule printout, portable pulse-oximeter
Right side pocket: moleskin notebook with all my references, sharpie, dry-erase marker
Left front: nothing!
Left cargo: new socks (almost 100% of the time), toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, oral swab – for ADL’s
Right front: personal cell phone
Right cargo: work phone
I have been debating keeping a pair of small shears for cutting things like when I was an EMT.
So what is in your OT pockets?
