I really like the quality safety checklist

“I really like the quality safety checklist with the Foley Catheters. Sometimes I think they get left in longer than they’re supposed to. People forget about it. You know, foley was in and this has been in for so many days, can we do a voiding trial on this patient?”

it cuts out all the unnecessary information

“I think it cuts out all the unnecessary information that isn’t needed that nurses may just pass on that doesn’t need to be included. So it keep us focused on the patient and what they’re here for and the medical facts and not social things or other things that can sometimes creep into report.

I think Nurses First is really good

“You’ve got a structure and you make sure you don’t miss anything. It’s really easy to just write in the information and as you go through you think of something that you didn’t even remember at the time, but because it’s already there to sort of remind you, it helps with bringing on that memory. But I think [Nurses First] is really good.”

New grad nurse to MET team

“We had a Medical Emergency Team response one night. And one of the new Grad nurses was in charge of this patient, she gave handover to the MET team as they arrived. And I was so proud of her. She did an amazing job and the MET team just looked at her and from their eyes she could have been a nurse with 20 years experience.”

Handover to ICU team

“A young nurse had to handover a patient to the ICU team, went over there with absolute confidence standing in front of ICU physicians and nurses all staring at her. She didn’t feel nervous because she just pulled out the bedside handover tool and she just went through it like we do on the ward, systems approach, and then she looked at everybody. She expected all these questions to come, but she’d covered everything. Not even the doctors had any questions and she came back to the ward really proud and really confident that she’d given it a great handover.”
