Nurses take being awesome to a whole new level with their selfless service and sunny dispositions, so it’s only right that we give back any way we can, right?
With Christmas right around the corner let’s make a conscience decision to skip out on giving the special nurses in our lives another candle they’ll never light or a Precious Moments figurine their kids will break.
This year let’s give them a truly spectacular gift.
Something that will let them know how much we value them while making their eyes sparkle with gratitude! What better way to do that than with something made for nurses by nurses? And you’re in luck, because we happen to know some of the most wonderful and talented nurse inventors who have dedicated their time and energy to creating things that benefit other nurses in their daily grind.
Without further ado – here are our top Nurse Invented Gifts for that special nurse on your list this year!
Designed by Sarah Brennan-Mott, RN this handy little gem keeps your stethoscope right at your fingertips, but off your neck! There are lots of reasons nurses don’t like their stethoscope hanging from their neck; primarily because it causes neck pain and attracts germs faster than a toddler at a theme park. The Koala~Qlip changes all that by allowing you to wear your stethoscope on the waistband of your pants – meaning no more MRSA or C-DIFF on your stethoscope. You can thank us later.
The UltraScope® stethoscope is one of our favorites for a dozen different reasons. It’s superior acoustics, quality craftsmanship, and lifetime warranty make it the perfect gift for any nurse, but what really sets it apart is how beautiful it is! Not only does the UtraScope® come in more designs than we can count, but you can also add a personal touch to it with their engraving service and/or charms.
These are NOT your ordinary scissors! They have gripping grooves that allow you to twist, hold, insert, or extract with ease when your hand strength just doesn’t cut it. Use them to grip IV tubing, G-tubes, oxygen connections, vials and pretty much anything else you can imagine. They even come in styles with a hook that are great for opening saline style vials AND work as an oxygen key!
Invented by an ICU nurse with a mission to save time and keep patients comfortable, the illumivein is sure to exceed your expectations! With 9 High Powered LED’s, red illumination, aluminum body, wrist strap, and carrying case it makes a great gift for the nurse, doctor, phlebotomist, or ER tech on your list. They’re so sure you’ll love it they even offer a 100% money back guarantee.
