I spent my first few months on the ortho floor feeling like I was trudging through muck. I knew what assessments to do. I knew how to chart them. But I didn’t know what to watch out for. I didn’t know what variations from the norm were to be expected, and which ones to address. As time went by I created a little cheat sheet for myself. Now I have this form on my clipboard to refer to as needed. Feel free to download and edit/use.
