I work in a small community hospital in a CCU/MICU and our Unit Based Committee was asked to develop a patient daily goals work sheet. I think these were popular back in 2004. Are they still? I found some examples on a best care website. Is anyone using or doing this?

We don't have a sheet but instead have white boards in each room with a spot where we can write down the patient's goals for the days. They can be as simple as comfort & safety, maintain skin integrity, keep SaO2 >93%, decreased SOB....etc.
