|The shelving unit that we built, sits on Kayli's dresser.|
The most used supplies are stocked in our daughter's room. We built a shelving unit, bought shelving, and used things around the house to accommodate our organizing needs.
Inside the shelving unit, are the following organized bins, ready for easy access to medical supplies used daily....
|Inside a pull a smaller pull out drawer, we hold her tape, thermometers, scissors, lip gloss, eye lube, tape measures, and creams|
|Another small pull out drawer|
|In this general supply drawer, we hold the trach ties, alcohol wipes, 3 different size/types of gauze, and surgi lube. They are in a tub from another organizing system once in our basement.|
|In this pull out bin, we store the posey wraps, pulse ox sensors, and Gtube button hole covers|
|In this GI bin, we store 2 Mic Key buttons, and a month supply of daily extensions|
|Then nurses' blank paperwork is stored in the bin, and their notes, etc are filed in the binder|
|The spare parts for the respiratory equipment is stored in here|
|The respiratory supplies, and the book of CD's for Kayli's music player|
|Even a space for books!|
|Storage bags for hearing aids, FM system, and cleaning supplies|
|The nurses station in Kayli's room|
|The flower box holds lotions, dry erase markers, and the flowers in|
the vase have pens attached to them, so the nurses don't accidentally
walk off with them.
|We use a dry erase board for quick information such as address (in case of emergency), family cell numbers, last trach|
change, last gtube change, notice of new medications, etc.
The headboard is engraved with "Jesus Loves Me". The bed is on lockable wheels for easy movement. We ordered the attached IV pole. The mattress was included, and is water resistant and comfortable for her spine. We added an egg crate mattress as well.
This is Kayli's bed with an added canopy, to add to her princess room! We hang baby links with toys to her canopy frame. The canopy was a great $10 garage sale find, that we suspend from the ceiling, so it doesn't affect the hospital bed warranty. The drapes were included, and we are using them as the front post material. The back posts are made with the material from the flat bed sheet! We also have rope light suspended with the inside frame of the canopy, to give a wonderful visual affect, that acts as a night light and visual stimulation as well!
|Glove box holder and a basket to hold diapers and wipes. Kayli's super cape is in the picture also, hanging from her bed post. |
Immediately next to Kayli's bed, is a towel rack that supports the Kangaroo Joey feeding pump, and Fisher Paykel system. It is suspended high enough to clear the raising bed side, and the sterile water bag and feeding bad that is suspended from the attached bed IV pole.
|The IV pole is hidden behind the canopy post|
Next to Kayli's bed, we have an IKEA Lack Wall Shelf unit. It holds her Suction machine, catheters, pulse ox, and princess decorations. The portable suction machine fits neatly underneath!
|On the shelf, we have a command hook to hold the suction tubing when not in use.|
