A few threads have mentioned clothing worn to the Emergency Room and this got me thinking. Has anyone else planned ahead with their clothing and possessions before visiting the ER?
For the last 6 months, I have been dealing with several medical problems which resulted in 9 ER visits in that time span. When possible, I planned ahead to bring what would be required for an extended stay and chose my clothing appropriately. The first visit included comfortable shoes and clothing and external batteries for my cell phone. The second through 8th visit added nicotine lozenges, mouth night-guard, and special clothing choices. I wore slip-on shoes without socks, board shorts (swim trunks with integral underwear), and a t-shirt. When asked to undress, all I had to do was kick off the shoes and remove the t-shirt. The shorts stayed on and allowed me to get up without worry of my underwear showing under the hospital gown. Getting dressed again was equally efficient. The 9th visit occurred during work and I only had time to grab my cell phone before being taken to the local clinic which later transferred me to the ER.
