I am not crafty in that way either, but since I visit lots of homes, I see a lot of interesting things.
One I can think of right off the bat is a lady who used a big pretty conch shell by her sink, with litle shells in it, so when you placed a small soap in it, it drained the soapy stuff off so the soap would dry. So pretty.
I have started to use basketes to organize my clutter. So, on the kitchen table, we keep vitamins in a little basket so we all don;t forget to take them. I had another big basket which I put the cookbooks in for the kitchen, since I don't have any closet or shelf space is this old house. Also, bought a pretty little basket to keep the fish food in next to the fish tank, and one for my hampster. Other than that I am into big rubbermaid containers.... for everything!!!
Alos heard of a HH nurse who taught pt to use a pillow case safety pinned to the bed to hold the foley bag in, functional, yet aesthetically pleasing!
Another nursing tip, for a trach pt or anyone choking, this is for HH nurses if you have supplies w you, connect a small NG tube or foley cath (pedi sizes) to a piston tip syringe to use as a makeshift suction, insert catheter, and pull back on syringe for suction, teach it to families for power outs too.
Good idea for a thread!
