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.”

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.

you can tweak it to your unit

” I think the good thing about the [Nurses First] bedside handover is that you can tweak it to your unit. So handovers before would not have been potentially as accurate as what I would like them to be or expect them to be. Whereas now we’ve got this process and yeah you could give that handover and it’d be 98% accurate.”
