Just wondering if anyone has made up their own worksheet "brain" (without hospital identifying info of course) to help them remember what needs to get done, looked at, labs, tests, meds, etc, to help keep you on track during your shift? If so, can you post them here for others? I find it extremely helpful to see what other nurses use to help them with time management and keeping track of all that has to be done during a shift, especially for us newbies! I didn't do a search to see if this topic has already been posted, so I apologize if it's already been a topic.
I created one after my first week as a new nurse, because I needed more structure than the one on my unit provided. It's for a NICU, though, so doubt it'd be helpful for you. So, I guess my point is...try creating one that you, specifically, are comfortable with?
Mine is an excel form, so I can't attach it, but I'll send it to you if you think you need/want it. Just PM me.
