    They will allow a clipboard, but it will be really awkward to carry around because there aren't many places at all that you may set your paperwork. It just worked much better to fold mine in half long-ways and keep it in my pocket for quick reference.
    Exactly what i was thinking of!! Thanks!!

    I didn't want a lot of flipping back and forth so I put all of my mnemonics for 20 minute check, safety, mobility, fluid management on the fluid management page of the kardex packet. Then on the back of my packet I wrote my grid with AOC's and a few sections at the bottom just so I wouldn't forget anything. I attached a sample for you.
    Awesome! But i have to ask what are the words written in the margins? And you didnt use that exact paper did you?? Im appreciating your help so much.

    Just started Sheri's online workshop last week and was feeling pretty good, but now I feel overwhelemed. What is AOC?
    China
    AOC is Area Of Care. That is what the CE/Clinical Examiner will assign to you, to do for your patient.

    Those are my mnemonics:
    "scab" for safety
    S - siderails up
    C - call bell in reach
    A - Apply brake to bed
    B - Bed in low position

    "I think of a cow in a tie died shirt having a post traumatic stress disorder breakdown" for 20 minute check.
    H - Handwash
    I - Introduce myself & CE
    P - Purpose, tell pt. why I am here
    P - Put on gloves
    I - Id pt.
    C - check Iv Site
    O - off gloves
    W - wash hands
    P - Pinch turgor or ask Can I see your tongue?
    T - Tubing check - no kinks or air
    S - Solution - record on form
    D - Drip rate - record on form
    Iv- Voice the amount left hanging in the bag

    "Boil water" for fluid management
    B - Be sure to inform the pt. you will be counting I & O
    O - Observe all fluids at the bedside - Now would be a good time to refill pt.'s glass so you know where you started
    I - Instruct use of urinal or toilet hat
    L - Look at parenteral sources - tube feeding, IV solution and medications

    "Lab Sim." for mobility
    L - Level of Mobility
    A - Assistive Devices / Abnormalities in gait.
    B - Balance - Ask the pt. if he or she feels steady
    S - Slippers or shoes
    M - Move pt. by supporting weak areas.

    No I didn't use this exact paper. They keep everything you write on for their records. I printed this one out of the study guide and filled it in just like I did in my planning phase, then scanned it so I could post it on here. In the real PCS, you will be writing in those boxes as you do the things it is asking for.

    I personally have spent a ton on just prepping! Not complaining just saying. We know how to do it. We just need repetitive practice i think. Its kinda the same when you precept for someone. Just go by your criticalelements and it will be ok. Arent you doing sheris? She does have a mock of a pcs situation. I was told a clipboard would just get in the way....it may work for others though.
    I recommend doing anything through Sheri! If it weren't for her online workshop, I would have been totally lost throughout this whole thing!
