    I keep a copy of my report sheet in my pocket for emergencies like this! I am known around the various units I go to as the "Neat Nurse." I bet my fiance wished I was that neat at home!

    I tend to write notes on my hand and arns when I am not at work, because I someitmes wash my hands and think, ooops really should have written that down!

    I write on gloves though, if I have them in my pocket, or just about every thing else, never seen anyone writing on sheets through.

    When I wore scrubs, for a day in theatre, and in pacu, every one writes on the trousers and sleaves!

    I am bad for scribbling on micropore and then sticking that on my top! normally when I have a notebook in my pocket the tape is just easier!

    I write on my hands, arms, tape, especially the 2" silk. I have been know to write on the receipts from lunch...yeah I know "What lunch". and alcohol pads are great in a pinch.

    My body is a walking temple. I do not defame my body with black ink.



    Seriously.

    I hate stuff on my body. Hate sticky stuff. Hate ink. Its just one of my many neurosis, I guess!

    :chuckle

    Give me the paper!

    Or computer!

    I write on my hand all the time and if others say something about it, I just tell them it is my palm pilot.

    I use to, untill I recieved post-it note pad from one of the drug reps. I found it very usefull and it fits in my cargo pocket perfect without rubbing on my leg. Ofcourse that is after it has conformed to the shape of my thigh. I swear by them now.

    I keep a copy of my report sheet in my pocket, but it is faster to just write on my arm than rummage around trying to find it. The other day the charge nurse grabbed my arm, gasped, and proceeded to warn me about ink poisoning...

    I think everyone has written on odd things. Sheets during a code with no paper seems to be reoccuring, I have done it myself, as with paper towels though you HAVE to keep them with you or they end up in trash or laundry when you need them!

    I always write on the top of my right hand, not a whole lot of lefty's around, of on a paper towel, or just whatever I have in my pocket that can be written on. I have also ran into people and I get their # and write in on my hand. Some one told me that they had a piece of paper that I could use, but I told them that I would lose it before I got home. Not much chance of lossing my hand, Hee Hee
