Nicely Organized Report Sheet
- 0Mar 23, '06 by SkateBettySo far I haven't found just the right thing for taking report. I need a full page form for each patient because I write kind of big, with a place for everything. Please, could you put yours out there, so I have a few to pick from? I need something more comprehensive, with everything right there; a place for each doctor's name, labs, treatments, GI/GU, CV, etc. Mostly I need this so I don't forget to ask for information I will need later, but will forget while taking report d/t my lack of experience.
BTW, which forum do the trauma nurses hang out on? I am a new step-down nurse, but don't see a trauma icu forum.

My coworker made a sheet that has caught on - basically the same thing, but she uses the entire sheet of paper, has a space for the initial report and then to write in changes over the shift - I just use post-its though.
You'll find what works best for you.

Nice one from Mercer College
More of a student sheet, but could be easily compacted to 1/2 or 1/3 page.
