Ok, now that I have the stethoscope issue taken care of. What are some things that would be considered basic needs for some one to bring along with them for their clinical? You know the stuff that gets old real quick, when some one doesnt have it with them and they have to borrow it all the time from you. Remember I am only doing the basic EMT right now. So Im not bringing the whole dam hospital with me or the life flight chopper lol. Just the small stuff, Sheers, forceps, penlights, seat belt cutter, small note book? Also is there any brands of tools (sheers, and forceps) better than others or is all the stuff the same? I will be doing time at the hospital and on the med units, so if there is any thing specific to either of these please let me know. You know what they say take care of the small stuff and the big stuff will fall in to place. Thanks again for all the help. Robert Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
