'Ice to balls continuous' for a trauma patient. The attending gave his residents hell for it one morning during rounds, 'Who wrote that order? That is so unprofessional, I never want to see an order like that again!' when it was the attending that wrote it.
University at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY for my BSN graduated in 2008.
The hospital that I worked at previously used a point system for acuity and used the scores to make assignments. The idea was that everyone would have an equal assignment. I thought it was a really good system and wish my current hospital used something similar. I would just make sure that the staff know how to accurately score patients.
I would recommend asking your preceptor to be more hands-off. If he/she is doing a lot of your work you're not going to learn how to prioritize and time-manage your self. With making sure I get everything done that needs to get done I make to-do list for each patient. This will might help you to not forget to do somethings.
