Hi.being new to our hospitals medical floor I have noticed that there are several creative worksheets in use..................since I need to find one that works for me I was hoping some of you might offer some tips or even forward me copies of what works for you????? I understand that I will be responsible for up to 5 pts a shift and that hte usual pt load is 4.......thanks for your help

I was actually just about to start typing one up for myself, and saw your post. I am starting my med/surg clinicals and will have 2 patients. So, if anyone does have ideas I am all ears (eyes)!
I'm going to attach a worksheet or two I used as a student for clinicals; maybe you can use it, too?
For the "Shift Worksheet" one, I used it for med/surg clinicals and just circled times meds were due, jotted down v/s q4h, and notes next to each area of assessment. I could get four patients on one page this way, just the basics. Where it says "PA", I would note if there was a PA to follow pt (one hospital almost always had a PA for each pt, another never did).
For "A.M. Pt Assessment", it was one I got from my instructor that I modified to suit me better. It had everything she was looking for, as I recall, in a format that made sure I covered the whole assessment.
Feel free to use these as you need....these are the student ones I used, not the one I'm using now, as I believe the student ones are more what you're looking for at this point. Best of luck to you!
