Thanks for all of these great ideas. I use an index card type arrangement for now, all handwritten. I really like the "circle it" preprinted idea, and will include in my next round of cards... I like the index cards though. Good old 3X5s.

This is pretty good! One question; how did you embed or attach your document on this website?

I work 7p to 7a on Tele.

This is the closest to mine, just in a slt diff form. I like to be able to have everything organized. A plain piece of paper does not work for my ADD brain!

I took a screenshot (.png) of my sheet and posted it here as a picture.

I couldn't see your brain sheet. Could you send it to me? Thanx

Hi, I'm new and just finished orientation but I've gathered lots of tips from nurses along the way. Haven't started using my brain sheet but I think it incorporates what the other nurses are doing. It prints out on legal paper with a front and back. Front is in SBAR style; back is sectioned to write notes w/a water mark of Mother Teresa to remind me it's all about the patient. I will try to attach them. Hope they help. :heartbeat

PS I'm on a Coronary Care Unit! Yippeee!

PPSS: Darn. I don't know how to attach file in this messaging system. If you PM me with your email I'll send you the attachments in word. Good luck.

Hi, I'd love a copy of your brain. Click above on the email icon to send it. thanks!

I have a "brain" sheet I attach to front of cardex, then fold cardex and cut corners that I carry for my 4 pts. I also have a meds brain I tape to my MARS binder so I don't miss any meds t/o day. I make notes on the meds brain for follow up like, rm 63, asa missing, K+ scale, collect UA, drsg change...

For some reason I am unable to upload them so e-mail me and I can send. These are MS Word & Excel files.

I would be interested in your brain sheets. Please send anytime you update.
