AZRN4life 15 Posts Specializes in Med-Surg, ICU. Has 4 years experience. Mar 22, 2008 I have never had a formal report worksheet... the back of a progress note page works fine for me. I am in love with my colored pens, though. I can't start report without a highlighter, a red pen and a black pen. I recently bought a green pen but have yet to figure out how to work it into report. When I do though... watch out!I also love printouts from a computer with patient info and current orders. That is where my colored pens really shine! I highlight meds, circle allergies in red and some things like stat labs get both the highlighter and the red pen! Maybe I'll use the red for report and the green for the stuff that happens on my shift. Hmmmmmm...........I do the same thing! I buy four color pens and have my system down: black for routine things, green for report, blue for new orders, and red for urgent matters and must-remember items (ex. allergies, procedures, etc). It keeps me organized at a quick glance.
