Idea Exchange: Fashion trash to keep patients clean

VETERINARY MEDICINE




Giving charcoal to patients is messy, so we place protective trash bag coats on these animals. We simply cut a hole the size of the patient's head in the bottom of a trash bag. Then we carefully place the bag over the animal, draping it like a poncho. The patient's head is exposed, but everything else is protected. We remove the bag when we're finished administering the charcoal.
