Words of Wisdom:

- Stay organized! Use whatever method works best for you (many people use rounding sheets)

- Start notes prior to rounding! You can do this either in a Word document and print it to have on rounds OR you can start a daily note (copy forward or start new if new patient) but always be sure if you do this to change the topic of the note to “in progress” and delete your signatures.

- Be sure to get sign out from the off going intern and give sign out to the oncoming intern at the beginning and end of the month!

- Be nice to nurses and get to know them
