    do u have any form about perioperative assessment?? pls help
    Here are ones that I found online. The first one actually starts on page 2 of the document. I strongly suggest you download and save the file on your own computer if you like it (it's a PDF file) so you'll always have it because it could be removed from the Internet at any time.

    Hi i am looking for a assessment sheet to use in a private care setting. Pt has Spina Bifida and G/T ACE malone and problems with decub on coccyx d/t sitting in w/c. Also has a trach and is on a vent at night. I can't seem to find anything and think it would be helpful to chart daily so when Pt has appt's i can send copies. Can anyone please help.

    It's not likely to exist. It's sounds like something that would need to be very customized. You will probably have to create it. In all the years I've been a nurse that has been what I have found to be true--had to create my own.
