Kiddos are nothing like adults. Everything, every piece of data, is more sensitive in an acute child than an adult. I found that all the nursing brains I was using didn’t allow enough room. For adults, you can put three patients on one sheet of paper. However, in peds, I needed one piece of paper per child.
I created my own thorough nursing brain for peds. It includes everything you could need in an acute or intensive care setting.
I have shared it with you all below in both day and night shift.
