Bedside Nursing Report Implementation

           Bedside shift change report implementation is a newer phenomenon crossing America to help reduce falls at shift change, decrease medication errors, and give better patient -nurse satisfaction. Data analysis of a magnet 532 bed Midwest teaching hospital for patient satisfaction results were measured using a two-tailed t-test to determine the data significance (McAllen et al., 2018). The results of their study of 94 shift reports noted there was not a statistically significant difference between the mean time for the report before and after implementation of the report at the bedside. It was noted that patient falls were decreased by 24% post implementation compared to pre-implementation. (McAllen et al., 2018). Units included in this study had a 6.9% reduction. The general surgery unit was statistically significant (p = 0.03) improvement in satisfaction (McAllen et al., 2018). The analysis of patient fall rates used the Chi-square test. (McAllen et al., 2018). Nursing satisfaction had an increase of 67% (McAllen et al., 2018). Press Ganey scores showed a result from an average score of 87.7% increased to 91.6%. (McAllen et al., 2018) So, are patients and nurses who have report given at bedside at a decreased risk for patient falls at shift change compared with patients without bedside reporting implemented?


QUESTION: Do I have my APA correct in this document? It seems that I am using in text citation too much. Am I? The information is all form the same article.
