I totally agree that bedside shift report is essential in nursing care and by delivering the end of shift report at the bedside, patients are engaged in their care, trust is increased between the nurse and patient, and nurses are more accountable for their actions when reported in front of the patient. Ofori-Atta et al. (2015) state that the move from giving a report at the nurse’s station to the patient’s bedside can save lives and improve the patients understanding of their condition and plan of care. However, nurses give crazy excuses what they don't want to give reports at the bedside. I did a survey at my hospital as to my nurses was resistance to bedside reporting prior to implementation of it. These are a list of reasons why nurses stated they were not comfortable with reporting at the bedside 1. They did not want to wake the patient up. 2. The patient had other family members in the room and they did not want to discuss personal information in front of them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
