Abstract

In September/October 1988, Pediatric Nursing published a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) flow sheet for documenting assessments and nursing interventions. In this article, a hospital's pediatric flow sheet that allows for entries related to general pediatric practice is presented. It decreases the amount of time required to chart as well as the number of medical record forms used to comply with JCAHO standards for nursing documentation.
