Nurse organization is essential for patient safety.

At my first clinical rotations as a nursing student, I was so in awe of how nurses were able to remember so much information.  It is hard to explain to a non-medical person how much data nurses have to remember unless you see it or experience it first hand.

I saw my first nursing brain sheet during my first pediatric ICU rotation.  The nurse I was working with was very professional when working with her patients and their families.  She seemed very busy, but not overly stressed, which was impressive considering the high acuity and age of her patient population.

That was also the first time a nurse explained how to keep a patient’s medical information – using a nurse’s brain sheet – organized in a way that made sense.

These days, hospitals are mostly paperless and use interactive computer systems – such as EPIC – to chart patient information.  Computer charting software is essential so that patients’ medical information is in one place. Also, there is less paperwork to get lost, there is no messy handwriting to decipher, and the patient’s information can be shared among all ancillary staff:  doctors, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, case managers, etcetera.

But even with substantial technological advances in paperless charting, it is still beneficial for nurses to keep essential information at their fingertips.  This is where a nursing report sheet comes to play.

What is a nursing report sheet?

Nursing report sheets keep nurses organized and helps keep patients safe.

A nurse report sheet, also referred to as a nursing brain sheet, is a piece of paper that contains organized information on your patients.   The sheets will look differently depending on what specialty you work in at the hospital.

Some of the information on a nursing brain sheet includes history, diagnosis, medications, allergies, DNR status, lab values, NPO status, family phone numbers, and any other patient care notes you need to remember during your shift.

Many nurses get used to using a particular nursing report sheet early in their careers – and then they keep using it throughout their entire careers no matter what specialty they move into. Although different hospital specialties focus on specific patient information, and you may want to use one that is specific to your specific patient population.

For example, a neuro nurse who cares primarily for patients with traumatic brain injuries will have a different brain sheet then a cardiac ICU nurse.  Each patient population focuses on a different organs, lab values, medications, treatments, and usually have different benchmarks that they strive for during each shift.
