This is what I did when I worked days. Get report, go see my pts and make sure no iv bags were going to run out etc. I would then check what meds were due for my whole shift and write the time and circle it for each patient. When I had finnished giving the med for a pt I would x out the circle. I would also get all my iv antibs I would need for my pts and put them in their draw.
I would then give out my insulins and 0800 meds, and assess the patients (that had the meds ) and write it down on my report sheet.
Next I would check vital signs and labs in the computer and write them down on my sheet. Any critical would call to doc.
Next if I had med due at 0900 and 1000 i would give them together and do the rest of my assessments. If I saw a IV had only 200cc left in it I would put up a new one so it would save me coming back in and doing it later. If I had two units of blood ordered I would make sure at least I got the first unit done for evening shift.
Admissions and discharges the charge nurse helped on.
Hope some of this is helpful
