report

  1. we are going to go from taped report to written report. the form is as big as a piece of paper, and we will have one for each pt. that's 6. this is being done in an effort to save time...anyone have any experiece with a form being used for report. seems weird to me, but then again i don't like changes that seem inane.

    Can you copy cut and paste?? If not sounds like a major waste of time! Really, does admin have nothing better to do??

    I can't imagine that it would save time to have to document everything and then rewrite it on another form.?????

    NOT the way to do it at all!!!

    Print out a census or work sheet with 4-5 names on a page......all you want are the highlights.....I&O if applicable, allergy, IV fluid, surgery and date,
    you know NEEDED stuff.

    The other stuff is already in the Kardex or PCP so why duplicate? They aren't going to make this a legal document as part of the chart are they?

    Sounds time consuming, but could eliminate things you might forget. Perhaps there could be a form to give nurse to nurse in person report. Nothing works better in my opinion.

    This format was used at one of my clinical sites and it actually worked out pretty good.

    All of the orders were printed out on the report sheet, and there was room to make notes during nurse to nurse report.

    The secretary printed out sheets at shift change, and any new orders that were put in the computer were on the new report sheet.

    It was less time consuming than a taped report.

    Yuck!! I would hate that. Sometimes a block just isn't big enough. They would take me way more time. I am horrible at spelling too. Good Luck with that. Let us know how you like it.

    Sounds to me like its more of a step backward then foreward.
