Change of Shift Reporting : 

Change of Shift Reporting The nurse also needs information about the patients he or she will be caring for. This is typically done as a “change of shift” report. Staff nurses view change-of-shift report as a critical event for exchanging patient information. To ensure continuity of care when the care is transitioned to the next nursing caregiver, the report must be broad enough to encompass the holistic and long-term goals of the patient, yet specific enough to meet short-term goals and offer individualized preferences to meet the patient needs. Traditional methods of shift report such as verbal and taped report tend to be lengthy, inconsistent, and have missing or incorrect elements of patient information. The content sometimes digresses to irrelevant or judgmental statements. This can lead to negative preconceptions by the oncoming nurse, omissions of relevant patient care, and complaints from patients, families, and physicians.

Pros And Cons Of Bedside Reporting Pros The benefits of the proposed bedside report based on traditional report inefficiencies and identified problems with the current report process offer an immediate solution to many of the problems identified with other traditional methods. This new style of report is informative, shorter, more individualized, and involves the patient. It provides a win-win situation for the staff as well as the patients. Cons Issues with confidentiality, and fear of situations where patients would talk or ask questions for extended periods, thus increasing length of time for the report. Other concerns were related to the actual process itself, such as what to do if the patient does not know the diagnosis or test results yet; what if the patient is sleeping; and what if the patient is uncooperative with care and it needs to be reported to the oncoming shift. Patients understanding of the information being reported on.
