- Feb 4 by GrnTeaWhat's a data sheet? Is it for some kind of assignment? How about you describe it or ask the faculty who assigned it?
- It's like I have to describe My patients after I finish My clinical work at hospitals and all, you know?
- Feb 4 by GrnTeaNo, I don't know. Do you mean there are blanks to be filled in with data you are supposed to learn from/about your patient in clinical, and you don't know what they mean? What are they?
- Dude It's like the age of the patient, sex, occupation and the the physical assessment results like Yeah there are blanks..
- Feb 4 by dawniepooI'm taking a guess this is how you fill it out: Where it says age, you put the age. Where it says sex, you put male or female, etc. There's got to be more to this question right? I hope.
- Feb 4 by danceyrunWhy don't you ask your clinical instructor?
- Feb 4 by Miiki✿You should ask your instructor what they expect on this data sheet.
- People Stop hating on me! Lol now I feel stupid. I just wanna see how It's done, you know?
- Feb 4 by CT PixieDid you really just call GrnTea dude? Really? SHE was only trying to help (she IS a nursing instructor, if anyone can help it is GrnTea).
I'm assuming its a paper you need to fill out with the assessment data you collected on your patient. List it in a head to toe (body system) way. Neuro, head/neck, Cardiac, Respiratory, GI, GU, musculo-skeletal, skin/nails, any IVs tubes etc.
NEURO: Neuro-orientaiton, hand grasps, LOC, PERRLA, etc.
HEAD/NECK: head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, mucous membrains moist/dry?
RESP: breath sounds, o2 sat, on o2, normal breathing, cough present, sputum, respiration rate?
CARDIAC: cap refill, heart beat (reg/irreg), + pulses (pedal, radial, carotid etc), heart rate, BP
GI: bowel sounds, pain, distention, last BM
GU: urine color, clarity, any odor, bladder distentin pain etc
MS: balance, gait, strength, muscle mass
IV/tubes" any presence of IV's (peripheral or central), tubes (foley, rectal,) drains (JP, etc)
SKIN/NAILS: bruises, dressings, open areas, temp, pallor
Just put all the info you collected on your patient in to the appropriate section.
