We write in report books and basically copy patient's name,age,diagnoses and history and then add -on what every happened during shift ( last vital or any abnormal vitals and which MD is aware,what was done,drops/rises in labs,pain,bleeding, where the medlock is,etc...) I think every new grad has problems with report,once you get a system down you will be fine!
