nrsang97, BSN, RN 2,602 Posts Specializes in Neuro ICU and Med Surg. Has 22 years experience. Dec 19, 2014 Sorry that you lost your job. I agree that when I worked med surg I kept a brain sheet and wrote things down and crossed them off as I went. In ICU I had a sheet in each room that I kept a running list of things I needed to do and crossed off as I went. I noticed you said you have thyroid issues, I hope that gets straightened out.
