Homemade Non-Skid Socks We used diabetic/circulatory socks (perfect for swollen feet). After washing the socks without fabric softener, we decorated the bottoms from heel to toe with fabric puff paint. Lines, dots, squiggles! You just have to make sure to use thick lines when making your designs so that there is plenty of traction on the bottoms. Leave socks flat and let dry for at least 4 hours. These are going to a nursing home, but they are great for anyone!
"Dying" of thirst or they needed a different pair of non skid socks cause they hate green. Important shit. While I'm medicating & calming a pt in 10/10 pain or running a rapid...you know just "hanging out, gossiping & playing on the computer". That's how I've heard several pts describe what nurses do.
