The Art of Roundsmanship
Handouts created by:
Honors Consortium (AOA, Gold Humanism Honors Society, Landacre Honors Society)
and Student Council
The following documents are intended to help smooth your transition into new rotations by giving you suggestions for
commonly covered topics on rounds for each rotation. Included documents are listed below. These are, of course, only
general suggestions created for the most part by students, and you should modify as needed for either your patient’s or
your team’s needs.
Medicine SOAP note – meant to be filled in on rounds, with helpful mnemonics following
Surgery SOAP note – similar to medicine soap, with surgery mnemonics
OB/Gyn SOAP notes as well as templates for other helpful notes, and menemonics following
Neurology SOAP note template and helpful neurology information
Psychiatry scut sheet – helpful for keeping track of history and has a place to record daily updates – from
medfools.com
6) Antibiotics reference chart – this is a modified version of the handout you will get during IM, but it is helpful for
all rotations, so we thought you might want it now.
7) EResults quick reference – abbreviated version of the handout in your GHHS Guide to Clinical Clerkships to
keep in your coat pocket

YOUR GUIDE TO NAVIGATING THE OSUMC SYSTEM:
WebExchange: for text paging
RadWeb: Radiology
Essentris: used in the Ross, L&D, ICUs for vitals, labs etc
E-results:
Accessing Single Patient Data:
All Pt Search-Results > MRN or Name (MRN is quicker and precise) > pt name > Note the new set of tabs that come up to the left [Patient
Info, Clinical Summary, Medications, etc, etc….]. This method is best for looking up data for patients who are not currently
admitted/active in the hospital (i.e. they are incoming so you can get ready for them to come in…).
Accessing Patients on Your Service’s Census:
CapiWeb/Results >Service Census > click on your service’s tab (Ge2, Me1, etc)> click on the blue pt name/hyperlink for your desired
patient from the census that comes up> Note the new set of tabs that come up to the left [Patient Info, Rounds Report, Results, etc….].
On the first day, find out what your Service Census code is!
Setting your default Census (so that every time you hit the Service Census tab it will automatically bring up your service’s census.
CapiWeb/Results> Change Default Census> Select Service button > Hit your Service’s hyperlink and then the Enter button.
Finding Patients on Your Service’s Consult Census/Finding Your Service’s Consult Census:
CapiWeb/Results >Clinician Census >Physician Consult>Type the first letters of your service into the dialogue box (Surg, ENT, etc)> click
on your service’s hyperlink> click on the blue pt name/hyperlink for your desired patient from the census that comes up>
Getting Prepped for Rounds:
Printing out your Service’s Census: includes recent labs, meds and handoff note included for each patient (great to have on rounds)
CapiWeb/Results>Print for Multi Pts>Service Census>Click on the hyperlink for your service>select all (button at bottom)>Print for
Selected Patients>MD Rounds (Notes/ To Do/ PMH/ Labs): if you want one/page this is an option above the type of note you want
printed.
People like to add their daily info on these handouts to be ready to present during rounds.
Every morning you can just go to Rounds Report which will bring any notes, studies, labs, imaging that was done in the past 24 hrs.
H&Ps:
-
Results > Encounters > History and Physical: use this to see what has already happened with your patient. Sometimes the H&P is in the
Chart handwritten under H&P or Progress Notes.
To look at notes from the ED: Result > Encounters > Emergency so you can see what was done with the patient before they came in.
Consults:
Results > Encounters > Consultations OR look in the FRONT of the chart on yellow paper!
Labs:
-
Micro:
-
To get a full view go to Results > Last 5 occurrences, check all the tabs since they are listed under different things: hematology, body
fluids, chemistry etc
Results > Micro (back 90days) OR Micro(back 2.5 yrs). Make sure to check if it is Pending or the final read. Look at sensitivities.
Imaging:
Results > Radiology > occasionally find reports here (better to use RadWeb).
Use RADWEB program to look at imaging
Procedures: (Cath reports, EEG reports, EGD reports, Colonoscopy reports
Results > Procedures
if you want to see past reports that aren’t showing up click on the check box and then click view all.
Surgical/Pathology:
Results > Surg/Path
Current Orders:
Results>Display Current Orders > see all the medications they are on currently.
Can use this to see if the orders discussed on rounds were followed up on and put in.
You might also need to check Orders > View orders > then select pharmacy/lab etc to see if an order was placed > hit enter
Look at past discharge summaries if patients don’t know their medications: Results > Encounters > Discharge summaries
Under Documentation >Charted Med or MAR > click past # days you want > click display charted medications > enter: this shows you
what medications the patient was actually administered. Allows you to see if they are refusing medications or if one-time orders were
given. Also the place to see their insulin coverage if they are on carb coverage
In the CHART: Charts are in boxes outside the patient rooms the code is 2+4, then 3, turn, Or in the James at the nurses station.
Vitals:
- on a dedicated clipboard or in the chart (harder to find) under the Nurse Flowsheets tab.
- report ranges of vitals over the past 24 hrs. Make sure to divide up I/Os by type of Output
- look at the nurses notes on the back of the vitals sheet.
- All the ICUs, Ross heart, L&D: Use Essentris (another program with another password).
Consults: in the front on yellow sheets of paper
Progress notes: see follow up consult notes, PT/OT/Speech notes, progress notes for all services except medicine.
Paperwork from Outside hospitals: usually in the back of the chart or at the clerk’s desk.
Other Helpful Tips:
Writing Handoff Notes
Documentation>Notes> Enter/Revise Handoff Note (just write the pt’s one-liner and the major 3-5 parts of your management plan)
Writing Hospital Courses
Documentation>Arrival Meds/DI> Enter / Modify (under Discharge Instructions Heading) > Categories (at bottom of screen) > Check
Physician, Procedure, Hosp Course box and hit Enter button at bottom of screen
You MUST put in a dictating physician (type in the name of your resident, then search) or your hospital course will NOT save> then hit
enter—will take you to procedures
Procedures: type in pertinent procedures> enter;
Hospital Course: Summary is one liner: Course gives info about what you did for the patient.
Hit SAVE, NOT FINALIZE
