Hey Justine! I was going to share something I found on amazon that you reminded me of when you mentioned the placemat. There’s a lunchbox brand that makes their lunch bags where they Unzip into a flat placemat. I’ll put the link in this comment! Just an idea!

I love that you made this video! I am a new subbie and haven't seen anyone take this approach before! I was listening to your suggestions and I have some of my own to add that stems from yours! I am a tech at a hospital while finishing nursing school and so I learn a lot of strategies! When I take a patient water, I only fill up the cup 3/4s of the way because people usually let me pour the little bit they have left in their new cup. Also I check the cup everytime I enter the room to ensure they always have water. As for gloves, I try to cluster care too but also doing your least contaminating tasks first so you don't have to change your gloves! Such as when I am getting vitals and glucoses, I get vitals first because after I get a glucose I have to change gloves due to blood. It's the little things that make a huge difference! I wish my hospital recycled! We go through so much cardboard its insane!!

Love you and your content!
Just a thought, reusing a medication cup would be a breach of infection control in my mind. I love the idea of recycling though I will be attempting to make this a new habit!

Wajahat Shah says:

like your style of teaching

Jamie zhuang says:

same med cup, infection control?

I've come up with exactly the same things to do 🙂 And I'll definitely be looking at those ziplock bags! As a placemat I use my cloth napkin, so I have a little pouch with my cutlery from home with a reusable straw and 1 or 2 cloth napkins. They are always so handy 🙂 And I don't know if this is just common sense, but I always take my notes on the back of used paper ( if only one side has been printed or written on). There is generally a stash on the units where I am. Looking forward to your next videos! xx

angel joseph says:

Thank you..😙 you look so fit now..what are you doing for that??

Olivia Russell says:

loveeee this!!! thanks for sending this message!

Mariah M says:

In my opinion, it's hypocritical if you are unhealthy to the world and to yourself as a nurse. If we are going to preach healthy lives we need to be setting the example!

Camila Gomez says:

hey Justine random question, I'm going into nursing and I'm looking for a watch. Do you have any recommendations ??

Plastic Free July! I love my reuseable cups. I have a Stojo, a Keep Cup and a Thermos mug, and I bring my lunch in lovely reuseable BPA free boxes, and I have about 4 different waterbottles I use depending on how much water I want to bring. Just bought myself some steel straws!
I bought reuseable ziplocks for my kids lunches last year, was so sick of tossing the plastic ones and sick of spending money on them!!

I also loved my Diva Cup but have since moved on to reuseable cloth pads because I developed a lovely allergy to the bleaches in disposable sanitary pads. Becoming more eco conscious is brilliant. Well done for talking about it Justine!

I'm so excited to see the video about your friend's recycling project! I'm in school to be a surgical tech and I've already noticed SO much preventable waste in the medical industry.
