The I think the worse was one time I was getting a hip fracture patient and the ER nurse could not tell me which hip it was, and if it was broken. I was told "Um, they have a hurt hip." Seriously? I get we're all busy, but that blew my mind when I received that report!
I do like to know access, if there's anything running (fluids, antibiotics, etc), mentation, latest vitals, prn's given that might be continued on floor (usually last dose of pain meds, or if something for blood pressure, etc). I try to skim the chart if I have time, but it can be hit or miss, and most of the time the physicians have not entered their notes, so I'm just seeing a lot of "gave patient warm blanket."
