Abstract
Although the bag of the home care nurse is functional and historical, there is limited information in the literature about its use and nurses' preferences. This study analyzes how the bag is used, and examines comfort issues and preferences nurses have for this valuable tool. Implications for design and features are gained from this research as well as specific features to seek when choosing this important ergonomic tool.
