    I REALLY liked the form you just "whipped up" KCIN! I am trying to find a form that is not really for report, but that I can document all my stuff throughout the day on, so that when I go to document in the computer I know exactly when I had a pt visit, gave meds, what FSBS values were, etc...Any help with that?

    I did find it unusual that the OP was from almost 10 years ago - wonder what happened?

    I work in an open heart unit and report was one of the things that I stressed over for the first couple months. I basically use a modified fancas in which I put everything that pertains to cardiac and fluids at the top.

    I start off with the history and then I do the following:

    IV's - what is running where and at what rate.
    Cardiac - heart tones, ectopy/arrhythmias, rate/BP, chest tubes, urine/foley, vascular/pulses, edema, pacer wires, incisions.

    I usually talk about the labs and meds at this point.

    Respiratory - lung sounds, SATS, vent/O2, rate, suctioning/cough, spirometer

    GI - bowel sounds, diet, BM's, nausea, emesis

    Neuro - A&O?, pupils, strength, movement

    I complete it by talking about the family and visitation.

    I think this is a good way to give report on an open heart unit because it addresses the most important stuff first and moves down the line.

    I have a form that is very informative for report use that I can get my hands on at work. I don't go back until tomorrow. Sun July 27th. If you still need let me know. I am not sure how to get it to you. Can you attach things on these forums? I am new?

    Hi I'd really appreciate a copy of the report form. I'm in my last placement and have to do an assignment on an handover.

    I have to be leader next week (my LAST week of clinicals) and am extremely stessed. Is there any way that I can get a copy of your report sheet ASAP? Hopefully, this will reduce my level of anxiety about that assignment.

    Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ps. is it in .doc form??? For some reason, when I go to download any of the forms from this site (even if they have a .doc extension)......... they download in .php format and I can't open them.
    Thanks again!!
