My school has a number of clinical procedures we need to observe and/or perform to meet graduation requirements. Unfortunately, they do not have a way of logging our completion of those skills. They did away with an old scan-in card system because they couldn't keep up with it, and thay have not yet replaced it with something more effective. The current recommendation of the adminnistration is to keep a personal log of paient contacts and procedures performed, pending the introduction of a web-based tool with which to do this "sometime this year."

My question: does anyone have a PDA tool they find convenient for keeping track of patient contacts and procedures on the floors?

In my experience, no PDA patient tracking program is practical enough to actually use. But it sounds like you just want some kind of procedure log, which is different from a patient tracker. The site below has something you might find useful. It's for EM, but I'd expect that it would have basically all procedures listed.

Well, at the hospital I"m in now, the interns that have to keep track of pt hours do so by taking one of the labels used to label the pt's chart and specimens. They always make extra. I don't know what your hospital policy would be on that, but give it a try.
