Every day is different, but usually on my hospital floor, after getting report, I check to see if any of my patients are scheduled to go anywhere, like xray or physical therapy. First check each patient, and update their boards so they are informed of the day's events. Start your assessments on the patients (this may have to be finished later for various reasons). Medications are passed starting at 10am usually. Wound care, feedings, or procedures are fit in as best you can during the day. Interruptions happen, someone in pain,

another with shortness of breath, family members to speak to.....just prioritize and work with your team.
