how fast should I run

“I try to listen to which patients either have fallen or we’re very worried about falling because if the bed alarm goes off and you’re the only person sitting in the nurses station, you want to know how fast should I run to that bed alarm? I think that’s very useful information that we parse out in the morning huddle.”

hat’s been noted in the change of shift huddle

“There’s a couple of times that we’ve had patients that have needed a little bit more emotional support. And so that’s been noted in the change of shift huddle, which I think is really appropriate, especially for us [nurses] because we’re all in and out of each other’s rooms for most of [the] shift.”

Introduce relieving staff in huddle

“If we have relieving staff, we use the huddle to introduce them. Everybody says hi, we let everybody know their name and who they’re working with so that people can see them in the corridor and check in if they’re okay and they know their name. It historically has made the relieving staff really feel welcome and valued and happy within the unit and happy to come back to the unit as well.”

We’re all responsible

“Nurses hear [the information] for the entire floor. So it triggers you to say, okay, so 21 has a bed alarm. That’s not my patient, but 21 has a bed alarm, so I need to make sure that if something happens in that room, I [know when I] go in there, we’re all responsible.”

quality-safety checklist

“I really liked 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?”
