I get flustered because I am afraid that I will leave out something pertinent, and I feel that I either end up babbling and saying too much, or that the general sequence of my report sounds disjointed and random, even though I try to follow the order that things are listed on the Kardex. It sounds silly, but I think that speaking into a mic gives me stage fright!
Does anyone else have an issue with this? Can anyone share a link to a template or sample of a report sheet that they follow that is inclusive but concise and to the point? I would really appreciate this, or just any tips or suggestions that you find work for you.
Other than this, I feel that I am a good, competent nurse and I love my job!

- Jun 27, '11 by Minnie2006I completely understand how you feel. Sort of stage fright and lack of confidence in your presentation and fear of being judged badly. From what I can tell, most nurses don't want a rehash of what is written in plain view or can easily be read off shift report. I've been trying to streamline my report by stating reason for admission any major test results or events since, what my shift with pt. was like and what is still needing to be done for pt. If you enter a search you will get a list of other posts that may help you. Good luck.

We stopped taped reports because of risk of HIPAA violations (not everyone needs to hear about every patient). Maybe you could suggest another method.
