How we partner with you
Nurses First provides units the opportunity to give exquisite attention to a specific part of their daily routine, shift change. As a new group comes in to take the reigns from their off-going teammates, the transfer of care of the unit and each patient should be handled in a very intentional way. So we start the shift with a brief and warm Team Huddle that communicates timely information that all staff should know. Then nurses pair off for Structured Bedside Handover, an efficient, consistent, nurse-developed and patient-centered version of giving report. The concepts are not novel, but the way they are put into practice and sustained with high performance behaviors is why hospitals ask us to partner with them.
