Bedside Report: Improving hand-off Shift Report in Hospital Settings Eastern International College Evelyn Terreros & Meron Gebrezgi April 26, 2013

End of shift reports between nurses has been an important process in clinical nursing practice. Allowing nurses to exchange vital patient information to ensure continuity of care and patient safety. Therefore, the chance of potential communication gaps causing an error is high. According to the Joint Commission, communication is the primary cause of medical errors, with handoffs accounting for 80% of these errors [ (Zhani, 2012) ]. The most commonly practiced model of report takes place in the staff room, at the nurses’ station, or other locations away from the patient’s bedside. However, more institutions are implementing the Bedside Report hand-off model to communicate patient care information. Research articles has identified the benefits of bedside report in conjunction with structured reporting tool (e.g. SBAR) as: (1) improvements in patient-centered care and nursing services, (2) less chance of medical errors, (3) decreasing the length of stay in patients [ (Chaboyer W, 2009) ].
Upon observing the shift to shift report in SMMC, it was evident that some nurses failed to provide effective communication and did not utilized the SBAR format tool as stated in the hospital’s guidelines. Hand-off reports were being done in the nurse’s station and along the unit’s hallways. Fatigue and distractions contributed to ineffective communication. As a result shift reports are often unstructured, repetitive, and lacked consistency in the type of information provided by each individual nurse. According to Anderson CD 2010, found that nursing report assessments are frequently subjective in their content and accompanied by judgments and labeling of patients (Anderson CD, 2010).…...

...Analysis and Implications for Practice of Quantitative Research Report Introduction: It is very essential to avoid miscommunication among the health care providers since it leads to decreased staff and patient satisfaction. In health care now it is a challenge to create an environment in which open and free communication takes place. For this purpose, by using communication tools such as the situation background-assessment-recommendation (SBAR) method, interpersonal messages among the team members are clear even in stressful situations. At Went-Douglass Hospital, the management team decides to create a Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB) to help the nursing staff solve their problems in adapting the changes. The TCAB team consists of 20 nurses, pharmacists, care managers, physicians, clinical coordinators, educators, and supervisors. The main aim was to improve communications and hence improve satisfaction among health care employees and patients. Also, the TCAB planned to find a comfortable environment that best suits the patients, families and the health care providers. They implemented three major factors: moving the change of shift report to the bedside, initiating the safety huddle, and establishing nurse-physician “intentional” rounds at the bedside. The trial took place in a 28 bed medical/surgical unit, with the staff members participating in the trial. The results helped to improve the communication between staff and patient in a medical facility, and......

The New Trend of Bedside Reporting Versus Traditional Taped Report Methods

...The New Trend of Bedside Reporting Versus Traditional Taped Report Methods Community Health Nursing Lewis Clark State College The change from taped report to a bedside report is essential to increasing patient safety and satisfaction, nursing satisfaction, physician satisfaction, and a savings to the health-care facility. The Joint Commission found that the breakdown in communication during the shift report is a leading cause of sentinel events in the United States (Laws & Amato, 2010). We will explore benefits to the patient, nurse, facility and physician. The patient and family benefit by becoming a part of their own treatment. They will participate in decisions and know at all times the plan for their care. This autonomy helps the patient to have a confidence in the health-care facility and staff. They provide essential information that is not available otherwise to assist in providing the best care possible for the patient. With the family and patient being informed about the plan of care, they are less anxious. This promotes more compliance with care and willingness to start treatments earlier. These patients have a higher level of satisfaction and are less likely to litigate (Anderson & Mangino, 2006). In a study at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in San Diego County, a 481-bed community hospital, the patient benefits included a reduction of unanswered call lights and a reduction in patient falls. With the bedside report, patients are......

...seamless academic progression”. (The future of, 2011) The trend toward bachelor educated nurses is the foundation for the other changes that the IOM has put forth in this report. BSN nurses have further education and a more diverse background that will allow them to move seamlessly from education in to practice in the fields of leadership, case management and community settings all of which the report seeks to impact directly. Largely this movement is directed from the need of patient care coordination, the use of evidence-based practice and research skills within healthcare all of which the BSN have developed competencies according to American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s (AACN’s) Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice. The IOM also addresses the need for “nursing to adopt a frame work of continuous learning”. This impact on the education system will be two fold. The first goal of continuous learning is to develop and maintain competencies. But more interesting and more effective toward the common goal is that this frame work will give nurses the opportunity to transfer from acute settings to more community based care systems which is the basis of the primary health care impact of the IOM report. Impact on Practice Key message number two of the IOM report on the Future of Nursing states “Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training”.

As the future of health care changes the nurses’ role will change as well. In 2008, The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) combined partnership and put together a committee to assess nursing practices and make recommendations for the future transformations in the health care system. This report was released in 2010 and included four key components in which three will be discussed in this paper. One key component stated in the report was “Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seem less academic progression” (Institute of Medicine 2010, pg. #). At this time achieving and Associates Degree of Nursing (ADN) through a two year program was the most common pathway for Registered Nurses (RN). Although there are many evidenced based reasoning that the higher level or Baccalaureate Degree Nurses (BSN) possess better professional behaviors such as, critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills, the ADN program continues to be more cost effective and requires less amount of schooling. Many believe that education has a strong impact on the nursing profession and the report emphasizes the goal to achieve 80% BSN by 2020 (citation). “The education system should ensure that nurses have the intellectual......

...IOM Report and the Future of Nursing The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, as well as the changing needs of patients over several decades, have began putting pressures on the healthcare system as more people will have insurance coverage and greater access to healthcare than ever before. The nursing profession is now in a unique position to change healthcare in providing affordable and quality care that is more accessible. At present, there is a shortage to meet these demands and provide quality care that is needed for millions patients that are soon to be added by healthcare coverage. The IOM report put forth a vision and recommendations that puts nursing in the center of needed reforms to meet these challenges. The IOM report makes recommendations specific to nursing education as nursing is a unique profession that offers multiple pathways to entry-level practice. Changes in the healthcare system will require changes in the education of nurses. The report makes certain that nurses will need further educational qualifications to ensure quality care that is safe and patient centered. Competencies needed to practice have expanded greatly especially in areas of community and public health, teamwork and collaboration, research and evidence based practice, geriatrics, as well as leadership in healthcare system improvement and health policy (Committee on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, IOM report, 2011, p. 6).

Boyd Grand Canyon University NRS-430V Professional Dynamics February 2nd, 2014 Change is always vital to progress and the field of nursing is constantly in change. The world that we live in today is creating a higher need for more nurses, changing the way that nurses are educated and creating new approaches to utilize nurses out in the field. On October 5th, 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released the report “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” The report elaborates on the need for the nursing profession to prepare for the changes that are occurring due to the health care reform and the current transformation that our healthcare system is enduring. It is becoming more and more apparent that the methods in which nurses have been educated in the past are no longer adequate for dealing with the new changes in current patient care. As patient care needs have become more multifaceted, nurses are having to refine their skills and obtain higher levels of learning to ensure that superior care is truly being delivered. The level of education required by nurses to sit for their license and enter into the profession of nursing has been a topic of debate for many years. As of now each state’s Board of Nursing regulates the standards that are required. Typically a Bachelor’s degree is much more desired by most hospital and community......

Difference in Bedside Competencies Between Adn and Bsn Nurses

...Differences in Bedside Competency Between ADN and BSN Nurses Tonya L Henson Grand Canyon University NRS-430V May 10, 2010 Currently in the United States there are three types of Registered Nurses. Diploma nurses obtain their education through a hospital based program. Associate Degree nurses usually receive their degree in a two year or community college setting. A Bachelor of Science degree in nursing is a four year academic degree. The debate over minimum education requirements for nurses has been going on for decades and there still seems to be no general consensus. The subject of entry level education requirements is one that is very divisive to many nurses. Internet searches bring up thousands of blogs, message board postings, position statements and statistics related to this issue. In this paper the focus will be on ADN and BSN nurses. Associate degree programs are designed to train students to provide entry level care in a hospital setting. The ADN is an attractive option for many due to shortened program time and the reduced tuition rate. Baccalaureate nursing programs have additional classes in humanities, the sciences and expanded nursing coursework. The additional classes in community health nursing, nursing management and research are designed to provide the BSN prepared nurse for a broader scope of practice. This enables the BSN prepared nurse to move away from direct bedside care in a hospital setting. The BSN degree also serves as a bridge to......

...The Impact of Nursing as a Result of the 2010 IOM Report Marie Emily M. Garcia Grand Canyon University: Professional Dynamics February 15, 2015 Presented to Kelly A. Davis The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) collaborated in 2008 to respond and evaluate changes that were needed in the nursing profession. This initiative was a two year project that resulted “in producing a report that would make recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing” (Institute of Medicine, 2011). The premise that the report is attempting to answer is this, “What roles can nursing assume to address the increasing demand for safe, high-quality, and effective health care services?” (Institute of Medicine, 2011). My paper will attempt to review the IOM’s report on nursing education, nursing practice, and a nurse’s role as a leader. Nursing Education The nursing profession is educationally diverse. Many nurses can obtain their training and education via diploma, associate’s, bachelor’s degrees, and more recently accelerated, second-bachelor’s degree programs. With such diversity in education, there needs to be a more consistent curriculum that encompasses the changing health trends. According to the IOM, “the ways in which nurses were educated during the 20th century are no longer adequate for dealing with the realities of health care in the 21st century (2011).
