I'm starting orientation on a fast paced tele unit soon. I have 6 months experience is a slow paced critical access hospital. I was wondering if anyone could send me a copy of a good "brain" sheet. With priorities, I know it's abcs, and assessing the sickest patient first. My routine would be (hypothetically): get report, maybe check labs real quick and orders and a quick skim of anything I missed in report on the computer, check most recent VS if I didn't get them in report (aids do vitals where I will be), write them down on my sheet. maybe make a quick task list on my sheet. Then I'd do rounds checking my sickest pt. first, if all is well, start AM med pass and do a focused assessment when I do the med pass, I pass meds on my sickest pt. first and give them critical meds first in case one of my other pt's starts to crash and I have to go deal with it. Finish med pass, then chart on my pt's and check orders and any new labs and deal with any changes. I know this is kinda dumb, but am I prioritizing my duties correctly or are there things I'm missing. Anyway, I will get 8 weeks orientation, maybe 10 but I want to be off orientation as quickly as possible.
