Unpacked: Hospital Essentials

Contributing to our unpacked series, Mike Lally kept this pouch in his gear bag, a GORUCK GR1, ready to be pulled out and used when needed.

In December 2020 through April 2021, I spent 6 weeks off and on in the hospital. Amazingly, it was not COVID. I spent a lot of time in the Emergency Department. It was peak-COVID and beds were hard to find. The 10’ cable could stretch from any wall to the bed. The ear protection helped. There is no resting in a hospital. The ear plugs and ear buds helped keep the noise out. The phone stand made it easy to prop up my phone and FaceTime my family. There were not allowed to visit because of COVID.
