Ok, the photo above is to help you to remember:
Define what rooms you are using and check that
every room you are using has a stool, a clean lined drawer,
sufficient sheets and gowns, and a supply of both
Peterson (thin) and Graves (rounded) speculums
in a variety of sizes.
Don't forget to pop the buttons on all the door knobs
so the patient is not accidently locked into the room.
Other things you may want to consider before clinic:
Write in the patients who are expected in the Green Follow Up Book.
Are the charts of the patients coming pulled
with the latest printed progress notes for the return patients?
If not, you may have to do it. (EEK!) Get started on this early,
so you can get some lunch before clinic starts.
Also see that you have sufficient quantities of medications
ready and in good condition to use.
This may include re-moistening the monsel's paste,
checking for essential items such as acetic acid, telfa, lidocaine,
Acid for burning warts, lidocaine jelly, enough instruments gathered
for several procedures.
