I'm sorry not to be all warm and fuzzy, but it is NOT OK to keep forgetting things "because everyone forgets things." No, they don't, not all the time, not every shift. They figure out a way to know what they have to do and then check and double check to make sure they've done it.
Perhaps Esme could share the links to some of her "brains" again? These are the pieces of paper you carry around with you all day to prompt you to get everything done-- as it is done, you cross it off. Most people develop their own-- it's like a shopping list. When you are new to shopping for yourself, you write down everything: Milk, OJ, dinner x 4, cat food x7, whatever. After awhile, though, you have a good idea what you always get every time you go to the store, so you don't have to write it all down every time. You ALWAYS get milk, OJ, entrees for 4 dinners, and cat food, so your list is just the outliers or the things you don't want to forget, like the flashlight batteries, the laundry soap, the special ingredient for the potluck, and the bay leaf you used up last night.
So write your list at the beginning of the shift:
Pt A Dx________ MD______
VS 08 12 16
Meds 08 12 16
Daily wt: ___________
Accucheck 0730 _____ 1130______ 1730 ______ Sliding scale:
JP drain output ______________
PTT at 1400
add whatever you need to learn/do for that patient
Then do another for B, C, D, and whatever you have to do or check for the CNAs' patients.
Fold up your paper so it fits in your pocket and refer to it often.
