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.”
