Walk into any health facility, and you will realize how important a medical watch is for nurses or doctors. While they can serve many purposes, they are crucial in tracking different essential activities. A nurse’s routine may involve checking a patient’s vitals, giving medications as well as creating lab charts and pain monitoring. Doing all of these requires strict clockwork. Bear in mind that it’s not just one patient. So, how many times a day will you check your smartphone if you are a nurse without a watch?

Best Watches for Nurses 2020
Throughout the day, nurses use their watches for several different tasks. This ranges from keeping time to tracking various activities. Their work is usually time-critical. Some patients typically take medication at different intervals requiring the nurses always to be punctual. That’s why it is essential to get the best watches for nurses.
Some of the critical tasks that nurses and medical doctors undertake include:
- Keeping track of vitals
Nurses regularly monitor patients to ensure their vitals are improving. This determines what medication to give plus the status of the patient. The vitals mostly observed include the respiratory rate as well as the apical pulse rate. Both of these require accuracy. Therefore, a second hand is essential.
Some patients take their medication at specific intervals. Such medication requires the nurses to keep track of time when the medicine is administered and the patient’s reaction over a specified period.
Monitoring a patient’s pain levels
Nurses usually monitor a patient’s pain level to determine whether the medication is working. Pain could be an indication that the drug is not working as required or deeper underlying problems. The length and intensity of the pain over a certain period are crucial for the patient’s future records.
Since nurses work in shifts, they always document the activities of the patient and the time so that the next nurse or doctor is in the loop. This avoids overdosing patients or missing their medication at the appointed time. It also allows the doctor to assess the patients' progress.
What Should You Consider When buying a Nurse & Medical watch?
Now that we know why a nurse’s watch is critical, there are a few guides on getting one for yourself. These include.
An excellent medical watch should have a second hand for an added level of accuracy. You can get one with just the hour and minute hand, and it would still be okay if you are not interested in taking note of the seconds.
We cannot stress how much this is important. In a field where you are continually scrubbing your hands, you will occasionally spill some water onto your watch. This makes water resistance high on your priority.
Accidents happen all the time. Having comfortable bands that you can easily switch is a must. You don’t want to keep throwing away your watches because the bands keep coming off. Replacing the group is also a matter of cleanliness for the nurses. You don’t want a band that’ll carry bacteria and germs.
Considering how much you will be walking through your shift and the amount of stuff you will carry, a beautiful light watch is incredible. You wouldn’t want a watch to be one of the reasons your arms are sore.
The materials used to make your watch are as important as the watch itself. Stainless steel is great when you are always dealing with water, medication, and germs plus bacteria that are common in hospitals. The same can be said about silicon and plastic/nylon. It is easy to clean and quite comfortable.
Silicon & Rubber Watches
Rubber and silicone are excellent for medical watches. They are easily cleaned and don’t react nor wear out with regular washing and spilling of chemicals. This makes them great for nurses and doctors. They are also quite stylish and versatile, whether you are at home or heading to work. Nordgreen has taken the time to design remarkable watches for nurses with high-quality materials.
