Hi all, wondering what you are doing to write your vitals in droplet precaution rooms?

I work in a SNF and my hall has been designated as the “Covid” hall for any potentials/symptomatic/pending results etc. So I have quite a few droplet precaution rooms and my brain can not remember a patients vital signs without writing them down. Any one find a way to do this in a clean manner in a droplet precaution room?

Does the room have a window? If so, you could write them down on a paper towel and tape it (words facing towards the hallway) to the window inside of the patient's room.

If there isn't a window...maybe still write them down on a piece of paper as soon as you get them, then review it immediately before you step out and jot them down right away?

Write them on the window with erasable marker.
