Attachment 5032Report sheet
Nov 18, '06Hi everyone
I am new to allnurses. I am a traveler and I am presently at CHOMP, Monterey, CA.
Nov 18, '06Quote from mydesygnThis is the Jot that I have used (that I take report on for my shift). It has room for 5 patients. I write my meds/treatments/feeds into the time blocks (obviously I worked nights) and I write the report I recd into the block marked report. I ususally use the notes section for something I want to remeber to say in off-going report. It is set up to be printed on 11X14 instead of standard paper but I bought a package of colored 11X14 paper which works great because I can easily find my "jot" if I left it in a room.
Are you also looking for a sheet for reporting off? Do you do a written report at change of shift.
I really like yours for a time organizer! I can see where under 2000 block you might write assessment notes... VS under the blocks where you do VS, etc. OR you can fold it in half, crease on the short side, and on the back have lines horizontally that line up with the front side, and more notes there if needed. Very nice.
I don't think of the report sheet as a "end of shift" thing. Ideally it should be a brain! The thing you carry all shift, could chart from if you need to, and is organized in such a way so that if you read from it after 10 hours of running, it'll make sense to the next shift!
I have not done the premium thing. I'll list here roughly what goes on mine, as there are several word documents I have that have the same stuff on it, some in columns, some in 4 squares on a page, etc. Different strokes for ... you know.
I put a patient sticker at top. (So it has to go in the shredder at the end of the week. )
Abd: (abdomen, including bowel sounds, last BM)
IVFluid: (I don't write the IV stuff in till I see the patient. So it's accurate no matter what I get in report.)
(I know I left out neuro. I work in tele; I'll scribble on back if neuro problems come up.)
My favorite form of this is in four columns landscape (sideways) on a page, to fit a clipboard. My use of it is, that I highlight things I need and cross out things I don't. Highlight weight if they need a weight. If I admit at 0300 cross out other two VS lines. Cross through tele if they don't have telemetry. Write reminders for odd times of meds, but not the meds themselves. I can fold it over along the column lines as needed to scribble on the back or to add a 5th patient. There's a maybe one inch width blank space up and down the column where I scribble the times I was in the patient's room and my own unreadable abbreviations for what I did or found. Helps with charting and if I need to suddenly tell someone what's up with the patient right in the middle of something else.
