Designate someone to arrive to work 10-15 minutes early to hide the pumpkins!
Print off the pumpkin sheets, the rules to hang up on the unit and a tracking sheet for each nurse that will be coming on shift here.
Cut out each pumpkin and tape them in a unique location around the unit. Ideas for where to tape them could include inside the nutrition room cupboard, on the pixus, outside your manager's door, in a linen cart, etc. Make sure all the pumpkins are hung on your unit and not in any patient specific areas.
At your start of shift huddle or at the beginning of the shift have everyone grab a tracking sheet. They'll use this tracking sheet during their shift to write down all the places they find the pumpkins. Make sure everyone knows not to remove the pumpkins when they find them, simply to document on the sheet the pumpkin # and location.
Let the games begin! The first one to find all of the pumpkins on that shift wins!
