    I am also looking for a good hand-off sheet for end-of-shift report or while you are taking your own report...and then to get organized during the shift. I am very much a "checklist" person and love to use flowsheets. I have one that works fine for my adult telemetry unit, but it won't transfer over too well to the NICU. If you found one, please let me know! I would love to see it (or if anyone else reading along has one, that would be great.)

    The link to my sheet is in this thread and was still good as of last week. I'm also willing to email it if y'all would rather pm me your email address.

    I also am not a new graduate, but I'm transferring to NICU very soon after spending almost 2 years on a mixed antepartum/mother-baby unit! I'm very excited to be joining you all!

    This could just be an issue completely with on my computer's end, but when I click the link, it takes me directly to the MediaFire webpage instead of seeing your file.
