Careers: Nursing/Rally Packs *Urgent
I recently heard about Rally Packs and I was just wondering why they are called rally packs and how much do they cost for hosptials? I am very interested in getting into Nursing.
I really have no idea what a Rally Pack would cost. I imagine different suppliers have different costs, and of course different physicians order different contents so there are several factors that would effect the cost. Sorry I can't even guess at that one - perhaps ask a pharmacist.
As for why they're called "Rally Packs" I would imagine because it helps people rally which means "a sudden recovery or improvement after a setback". As an example, if a chronic alcoholic arrives in Emergency with a history of poor nutritional intake, a Rally Bag would help replace many of the Vitamins and Minerals he would likely be lacking in his system, particularly thiamine.
I hope this answers your question,
