Fanny pack might be okay (although you'll end up looking *more* like a nurse). Tongue depressors/q-tips fit into your back pocket. Lidocaine and an insufflator? Really? lol. Are the gloves hard to reach in the room? As a patient, I would prefer to see the doctor don fresh gloves rather than grab a grubby pair from her fanny-pak.

Sounds like you spend too much time in the room (Pharmacopeia looking up drugs?)...

...of course I'm saying this as an "old" ER doc who finds this super cute :)

I don't understand what you're carrying around :)

What about the Patagonia Atom Sling Pack and scrubs?

I pared things down considerably while in residency. I carry 1 pen, my ID badge and a tube of chapstick, my iphone/peripheral brain in a holster on my scrub pants, and my patient list/notepad. Stethoscope around neck. That's it. Anything else should be in the rooms or on a wall nearby. And if I don't have it, I yell. (My nurses are pretty good, although once I delivered a baby in the parking lot and the gloves took awhile to arrive)

I do wear a coat now - partly because the ED is so damned cold, and partly to distinguish me as the doctor, but I don't really use the pockets.

Oh wait, I do keep an emergency granola bar in one. But that's about it.

How about scrub jackets? They fit better and have large pockets. Patients think I am a nurse even often even if I am wearing a white coat and introduce myself as Dr. Clee. Or used to often. Seems more rare now. Either I am looking old or my patients are evolving.

Although you might get mistaken for a nurse quite a bit if you wear a scrub jacket... I do that sometimes and my co-residents tell me that I look like a nurse since they are mostly the ones who wear the jackets.
