scut bucket

1. slang A receptacle in which the supplies needed for routine, tedious medical procedures are carried. The first thing you'll want to get when you start doing rounds is a scut bucket to carry things like sutures, IV lines, gauze, and so on.
2. vulgar slang A low, contemptible, sexually promiscuous person, especially a woman. It's all that scut bucket's fault for breaking up my marriage! Just because she's had a couple of boyfriends in a short span of time doesn't make her some kind of scut bucket.

scut work

Tedious, routine work, especially that which is menial or objectionable. Medical interns always have to do the scut work around the hospital—it's just one of the steps toward becoming a doctor. I worked the whole summer as a laborer for the construction company my friend's father owned, so I got used to all manner of scut work.
