Some dood or doodette (as Nurse K calls them) keeps stealing the light setups for the specula.
So we have a bunch of the clear plastic specula, but no black wired light setup to fit inside of them and light them up.
Now we’re back to using flashlights with the specula to look inside.
Why would patients do such a thing?
Word out on the street is that the lights are really good to use when fixing your car.
You can’t go to WallyWorld and spend $15 on a LED penlight?
Here’s some advice: Replacement bulbs for the speculum lights run about $30, so don’t plan on using the light after the bulb burns out. You can just come to our ED and steal another one.
Oh, and if you grabbed the light from the dirty utility room, chances are that any odors you come across probably aren’t related to your vehicle.
Still want to keep the light on your workbench?
