Maintain Patient Safety With Change-of-Shift Reporting at the Bedside

Change-of-shift increases the risk to patient safety. Learn effective patient hand-off to improve safety and accountability. In the clinical arena, the change-of-shift is a vulnerable period. The goal of this topic is to outline the benefits of bedside shift reporting during the change-of-shift period. After this topic, staff nurses will have a better idea of what relevant information to universally include in their change-of-shift report. And, this material will precisely outline why shift reporting at the bedside promotes patient safety, a smooth change-of-shift transition, and an enhancement for patient satisfaction. You will be able to take the data back to your colleagues in an effort to universalize bedside shift reporting.
