New grad, please Help with med surg organization!!
- 0Dec 1, '12 by FuturesosOk. I just completed my first day on the floor. I feel horrible, there was no structure to the day, I was just thrown out there to care for five patients with my preceptor. I know my organizational skills are severely lacking because I have never cared for five patients. I feel like I will never get this, does anyone have any updated med surg worksheets?? I have reviewed some on the site, but was wondering if anyone out there has updated examples. Any advice or input would be helpful.

- 3Dec 1, '12 by I<3H2OWhat kind of things do you find you are having trouble organizing? My days on Med Surg went something like this:
0800-0830(or before if done with assessments early) chart assessments
0830-1000: 0900 med pass
10-1100: finish up a.m. charting
1100 rounds and lunch blood sugars
1200: chart 1100 rounds, pass lunch trays, give insulin
1300: rounds(half of the 1400 meds if I have a lot) and charting
1400: try to catch a break or catch up on charting
1500: (last half of 1400 meds) rounds and charting
1630: blood sugars
1700: pass trays/make rounds/insulins/charting
1800: final rounds to make sure IV bags are full and give 1900 meds

I know the feeling! I have been a med-surg nurse for about 6 months now and have created several worksheet I would be glad to share them with you, but I am having trouble finding out how to attach them--soo as soon as I figure that out I'll post them!!!
