head to toe assessment cheatsheet

  1. Just the headings and maybe what you look for such as Head eyes ears etc.
    my 2nd wk at clinical my book doesn't elaborate too much.

    This may help you out. It doesn't get into too many details, so you need some background from class to know what you're doing, but it gives you the basic idea.

    Hello!
    Thank You for your kind greeting. And the advice.
    Ihave the Fundamentals of nursing by LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS
    it's a good book but I knew or hoped that their would be a better assessment sheet out there. So now I feel I have a better baseline.
    Sincerely,

    What kind of assessment -- complete head to toe, focused assessment, or a quick and dirty assessment that we do at the bedside? When I took the assessment class that used the Jarvis book, we started out assessing specific areas: head, eyes, hearing, skin, neuro, etc. Then the entire thing was put together and we did a huge assessment that included everything. I know that the Jarvis book website has an assessment check off sheet for each part of the assessment and one long check off sheet for the full body assessment.

    complete head to toe, we have to perform a complete health assessment in 15 minutes, I just wanted to see this cheat sheet to give me an idea of how to correlate my own cheat sheet, but for some because I haven't posted 15 posts I can'e e-mail it to myself. if I press print will it print out the assessment for me? well thanks for helping me this is also my first year as an RN student
