My shift is 7a-7p. I start out by going with the previous nurse to do bedside reporting, (Of course if the patient is sleeping I do the report at the nurses station.) Then I can assess what type of fluids the patient is on, if they are on any. I can see that a bag is almost empty I need that nurse to change it, I would do the same thing at 7p if I left a bag low, (which rarely happens, I very anal when it comes to my job, no pun intended, lol.) Anyway, I basically touch base with each patient with the previous nurse. After that nurse is done, I go around and do my assessment, I check tele, etc. I then usually have all my assessments documented by 0730, we document on the computer. I then check labs, meds and anything else I feel is pertinent to my job. I start my 0900 med pass at 0800 with breakfast trays, it helps me get them done, especially if someone is on insulin I have to give that med anyway. I take all manual blood pressures, because I work on a step-down tele floor and I need to see for myself what my patients blood pressure is before giving BP meds. If I have patient's going to the cath lab and or any procedures I make sure all the paper work is filled out and the chart is ready to go, typically I do that before I do my assessments. I try to do my notes in the charts as I go. My floor can be insane, it's so incredibly busy, typically I have between 4-6 patients a shift. I am pretty organized and rarely have I ever had to stay over. I know this is a long post, but this is basically how my day goes. Not sure If I helped you but I hope I did.
