Counselors start arriving for staff training in one month, so I've been thinking about camp more and more... I have a lot of freedom to basically make health center policy, so I'm trying to decide if there's anything I want to work on this year.
I'm thinking about charting. This is probably the top complaint we've had from short-term nurses over the years. Our system works like this: counselors provide first aid "in the field" and write it in a notebook; we collect the notebooks at the end of each week and copy entries into our main logbook; then we copy each entry from the logbook onto a sheet of paper to send home to the parents. (We get a new batch of kids each week.) It amounts to a LOT of writing and copying.
Does anyone have a different system of charting that works well for you? Anyone use a computer in your charting / letters home?
While I'm at it, who IS going to camp this summer? I'm at a Girl Scout camp in northern California.
