Bedside reporting will improve teamwork among nursing. Beside reporting allows both nurse providers the ability to perform a simultaneous assessment facilitating continuity of care.

Supporting Evidence According to Frazier & Garrison (2014) BSR (Bedside Reporting) increases communication among nurses and patients, can increase patient satisfaction, encourages patient and family involvement, as well as improve the quality of care given. In an article by Rush (2012), “benefits of bedside reporting are numerous and include increased patient involvement and understanding of care, decreased patient and family anxiety, decreased feelings of “abandonment” at shift changes, increased accountability of nurses, increased teamwork and relationships among nurses, and decreased potential for mistakes.” According to Pearce & McCarry (2014), bedside reporting not only allows the patient to be involved in their care, it gives staff a chance to “recheck on patient safety for any at-risk patients.” According to Evans, Grunawait, McClish, Wood, & Friese (2012) bedside reporting increased nursing satisfaction, allowing nurses to assess the patient without distractions, “increased direct care time to patients.”

A communication platform such as SBAR will be established for all communications This form (individual to the patient) will be passed nurse to nurse for continuity of care over the 4 week period. Patient and family will be involved in care planning for the patient. ANALYSIS

    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.
