Medical & Nursing Bags
Doctor Totes are essential for medical professionals on the go. They contain and carry the necessary medical items for patient treatment and care within the home, at nursing facilities, for clinic visits, or house calls. Many of these bags are available in multiple colors and sizes and contain a variety of medical equipment that allows you help treat your patients with the highest quality and precision.

A Nurse Tote Bag and Medical Tote Bag provides storage of essential items, such as medical dressing, gauze rolls, stethoscopes, debridement fluid, medicated ointments, travel size sharps containers, scissors, pain relieving products, and more. Each bag is designed to be highly durable with multiple storage compartments and sturdy shoulder straps for easy portability.

Learning More about Proper "Bag Technique"
Medical professionals, who frequently treat patients within the home and rely on the use of a carry-along medical bag, are required to have a thorough comprehension of the principles of "bag technique," which prevents the transmission of pathogenic microorganisms.
The basics of "bag technique" include:
- Bag Placement During Interim Storage
- Proper Bag Placement
- Hand Hygiene
- Maintenance of Equipment and Supplies within the Bag
- Cleaning the Interior and Exterior Surfaces of the Bag
- Management of Equipment and Supplies Removed from the Bag
This technique helps medical professionals manage the tote bag, it's contents, and keep harmful pathogenic microorganisms from being brought into the patients home or transferred from one home to another.
