Ep020: Provide and Recieve Report

nclex prep nursing podcasts
  • Report will look different in various areas of the hospital
    • ED report is very short and concise
    • Critical care report is very detailed
    • Floor report is more detailed than the ED, but less detailed than critical care
    • Some facilities use standardized report forms (for example, SBAR)
    • Basically communicating info from one shift to the next:
      • What the nurse needs to know to safely care for the patient for the next 12 hours and coordinate care within the healthcare team
    • When receiving report, wait until reporting nurse is done to ask questions
