For the past couple weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of conducting a product review for a Stethoscope Holder sold by Nurse Born Products. What I really like about the product is that I could use it as an NP student in clinical, as well as a bedside nurse in an ICU. It was also an added bonus not having to worry about my stethoscope falling off of my neck every time I bent down to get my dropped pen or something.
It is very light and the holder itself can fit in the palm of your hand so it’s not that bulky. The only drawback is that I’m not used to using it so it took about an extra 3-5 seconds to get my stethoscope out for usage. I assume, however, that once I get used to using the holder, I will be able to access my stethoscope a lot faster.
Overall, I would have to say that I am very pleased with the product and will continue to use it at the end of my bedside career and into my NP career.
