The liberal nurse gives care in the home of his patients. A well-designed nursing medical bag enables the nurse to be well organised and therefore to deal professionally with all the situations she or he may encounter during daily rounds.
Which nursing medical bag to choose?
The nursing medical bag can also appeal to general practitioners making home visits because of its many advantages...
Choose a case adapted to your needs in terms of capacity and carrying mode (handles, shoulder strap or straps for backpack-style carrying).
If you choose a suitcase that is large enough and well compartmentalised, it will save you from carrying several bags on a daily basis, carrying all your professional medical equipment as well as all your personal belongings.

Some nursing cases are isothermal or even have an isothermal compartment where an isothermal storage can be added if necessary for medicines that need to be stored at certain temperatures.
