I have always created a report sheet of my own, so I understand where you are coming from. I also don't like to use more than one sheet. It was when the sheet were copied with the back side upside down that I finally gave up on the official one.
And not to dampen your zeal but what info do you need to have in the report, I don't write anything down that can be found elsewhere - so code status, doc, diagnoses, med stuff, VS, I don't need. I can look at the chart, the MAR, the VS board for all that. What I need is the current issues and concerns and things I need to take care of on my shift. With such a large number of residents I need to be able to easily pick out the important things like urine dips, family worries, labs etc. I came from intensive care to long term care and I had a real culture shock learning that it is OK not to know everything and be tracking everything.
So for me, I take a doctor's order sheet and write in the names as I get report and make three rough columns. What I am told in report, what happens on my shift, and the to do column. Then I use the back to make a running list of routine things to do which I just cross off as I go. Generally most of the day's events get on this list so when I get through report I just go over it to make sure I told everything.
