Late reply, but I thought I would throw in my 2 cents. We get a lot of codes in the ER. We do have a code sheet, but I'll grab a blank sheet of paper and stand by the clock when the code rolls in. Every minute I'll write something down, and just make a list minute by minute of what happens.
Ex: 1222 Pt arrival, monitor applied, asystole, CPR in progress
1223: Epi X1, CPR, checked two leads
1224 Hold CPR, asystole, 2nd IV in, 7.5 ETT taped @ 23 verified by CO2, condensation/auscultation
1225 Temp 96.8 R, CPR in progress Atropine X1
And so on. That way you get the times down and since you are charting minute by minute you aren't missing anything. Make sure and have your code leader call orders aloud, and your code nurse call aloud when order is given. They need to say it aloud so you can hear it and chart. Try and position yourself between the code cart and the clock so you can see the monitor and the time. Watch the clock, let them know when it's time for the next med. When you get comfortable with that, try and control traffic as well. Everyone comes running for a code... you'll probably need to throw some people out of the room.
After the code is over, go back and chart on the official sheet, that way you can proofread
and clarify before charting.
