- 0Jul 13, '08 by SouthernkittenI 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?
- 0Jul 21, '08 by mummer43I 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.

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.
