A brainsheet is what you use to take report, keep track of your pt's info, what they need, what's already done. Doubly nice when you have a mom and a baby to keep up with.

I have one but I'll have to send it from work. You can private message me to let me know where to send it.

Here are two of mine.

The first is an L&D one (two columns for 2 patients).

The second is a revised (more detailed) with ante/L&D on half the page and postpartum on the other half.

You could edit in Word for your needs :)

Thanks for sharing this! I have three that I made for AP, L&D, and PP but since our unit is LDRP, I may have 1 or 2 labor patients with 1 or 2 stable PP or AP patients which means I use 2 or 3 different sheets at times. I've been looking for a way to combine all of the necessary info applicable to all pts. I'll give yours a shot! Thanks a bunch!

I have actually revised it again but it's on my other computer that is not functioning at the moment... I'll try to remember to post it when/if I can :)
