With their consent four patients and nurses were randomly selected to producefeedback on hourly/purposeful rounding.

An analysis of the questionnaire handed over tothem showed that 4/4 of the patients felt safe with the introduction of hourly/purposeful roundingas per analysis of the results given in the eight questions of the patient’s questionnaire. Three ofthe patients questioned knew what hourly/purposeful rounding is which a good thing because ashealthcare workers we are to educate our patients as much as possible.Also, all nurses who received the questionnaire felt that hourly rounding is a goodinitiative in patient safety based on their response to question five on their questionnaire, whichallows for them to be proactive.
