Too funny , all the years I worked in the operating theatre and I never thought once of hospital gear.

Ok paper booties in case there is athlete's foot in the shower. Swabs in place of Tenas. Disposable  Gowns in place of p j's.  Paper hats to protect  us from the nits on the pillows.  A canister of nitrous oxide for a few laughs. Lots of bottles of distilleD  water and then some bags of saline for the  hangover. Disposable razors for shaving body hair. Iodine for putting on the bleeding bits.. Scrub brushes for cleaning the iodine off. OMG. The list goes on.  You have only got to pare it down and see what you can snaffle.

Lordy Lordy help us if anyone actually NEEDS a nurse. I only deal with the unconscious ones and you can deal with the ambulatory ones.

Better make sure there  are office chairs on wheels to wheel the  unconscious ones to the rooms. Dash can aid those who need someone to lean on.

We are good for,health and safety. Right?

Wait a minute mcmich did you say  nasal bolsters in the gynea  ward. OMG I have  worked with surgeons who did not know their bum from their nose when they were poking about.

Gert, you are having so much fun and you aren't even there yet  :D   Our goodie bags are going to be very interesting by the sounds of it and it's nice to know we have a couple of nurses on hand if per chance we need one or two.

OMG girls you are all going to have so much fun. Perhaps the incontinence pads may be needed for all those who wet themselves laughing.

It's wonderful to see the excitement you all have for the weekend.  SO JEALOUS!!!!

Is someone going to contribute some $s to CP to help her purchase the actual bags that the gooides are going to go into?  I think that would be a lovely and helpful idea.

I would take all of those items from SA if I was able to carry (and afford) enough for over 20 people  ;D  No more guessing, it's in one of those suggestions ;)
Marina, I am hoping CP lets us know exactly what we owe her for the weekend which will include a contribution towards the goodie bag. I am wondering though what size will be needed as this could be the biggest goodie bag you have ever seen if over 20 people are going to contribute to it.
