A Simple Trick for Cleaner GYN Cases

In GYN cases when the patient has to go up in stirrups, place a garbage bag under the table mattress. When you remove the foot piece, simply place the bag that is waiting there under the buttocks and use as a catch-all for the prep and urine from the doc draining the bladder. Then all you have to do is throw the whole bag away. This is so much easier and less messy than a kick bucket.
