After much anticipation “Nurse Notes”, a new app created by Nurse Mastery, is ready to hit the iTunes store in November. Nurse Notes is an innovative iPhone application developed by a team of nurses and programmers designed to help organize the daily tasks of nurses from all specialties. This powerful tool will send you audible & visual reminders about patient care and scheduled tasks during your shift, as well as help you chart & assist during report.
Do you rely on a piece of scratch paper to remember when & what to do throughout your shift? Stop writing everything down when you can easily program this app at the start of your shift. Take 5 minutes to plugin essential, patient specific reminders or quickly select from dozens of distinct choices within the following drop-down lists:
This comprehensive app can act as your brain sheet, sending you alerts throughout the day. “Complete” or “Delay” the alert to revisit it later. Set a task to “Repeat” for duties that recur throughout the day. “Clock-out” at the end of your shift to pause all alerts. “Clock-in” again to retain info and resume tasks for the patients you had during the previous shift. Easily view an organized task list of “Upcoming” duties and then slide them over to the “Completed” list for reporting later. Use the “Notes” section to write important occurrences you wish to handoff to the next nurse. Compile that long list of phone numbers and store all your information in one place:
- Phone, beeper, & room codes (simply tap to call within the app)
- Patient notes for report
- Room Number
- Code Status
Nurse Notes is sure to make an impact on the industry as a comprehensive organizational app for nurses has been lacking since cell phone technology has become so ubiquitous in US hospitals. The release date has yet to be announced but the buzz is building. Check back for more details and a direct link to the app in the iTunes store.
