Being organized and getting all your work done can be a tedious task. I work in the ER and we have anywhere from 4-6 patients at a time. They can be patients who have been there for hours, or new patients who need the immediate work up. The first thing I do when I come on shift is get report, (obviously) and then I use post it notes or a small piece of paper and make a list of all the things I need to do for that patient. Things like assessment, vitals, give meds, redraw blood, needs xray, waiting on labs, etc. This helps me evaluate what needs to be done NOW vs. what can be done later. Many times although we have techs who can help us, they often are hoarded by the lazy nurses, so I do most everything myself, and let's face it, you are only one person, and you can only do so many things at once. We use all computerized charting, and we chart by exception, which makes charting pretty tolerable. I'm sure the tasks are much different on the floor vs. the ER but it's all about prioritizing your tasks, and charting as you go would probably help. Hope it gets easier for you!
