I'm a new manager on a short term/long term floor.   I am having trouble staying organized and developing a system for things like tracking labs ordered q6m.  

I have some strengths that make me great at this job and I have some pretty significant weaknesses that are really making it hard.  Im kind of all over the place some days and I sometimes leave feeling as though I haven't accomplished anything.  


Any managers have any documents they would be willing to share or advise? 

Are you able to run a monthly report on labs that are due?

Can the lab help you out? I'd bet they have various auditing/tracking tools.

How do the other UMs manage? Personally, I always found the long-time  prescheduled ahead appts/tests difficult to track.
