According to Taylor (2015), bedside shift report
improves patient and family satisfaction because visualizing the transfer of patient information from nurse to nurse decreases patient and family anxiety and increases their perception of the nurse's ability to provide care.
With the implementation of Bedside Shift Report
, the pilot patient units have seen approximately 20 points of improvement.
Another report that was designed is the summarized report by week, showing the same information as the shift report
except for the individual stoppages.
Relevance of information received during the previous shift report
For instance, policies may limit opportunities for families to take on a more collaborative role--restrictive family presence policies during nurse change of shift reports
, limited participation of families and older pediatric patients in bedside rounds, and limited or no access for families during procedures.
The IONS publication, the Shift Report
, has this to say about our old story: Its purpose has been fulfilled, and, therefore, it is no longer needed.
Our Change of Shift Report
is electronic and on an internal, secure shared network drive so that nurses, counselors, physicians, and program service assistants or PSAs (non-medical staff who monitor and observe the patient community 24 hours a day) all have access to it.
Implementing a shift report
system also requires additional administrative tasks.
The Shift report
was also welcomed within the media itself.
When that next shift comes on, rather than meeting in a room for half an hour or longer, all staff can put on their headsets and start their rounds immediately, listening to the end of shift report
as they walk down the corridor.

This case study presents a dramaturgical analysis of the interactions of RNs at shift report
to better understand the impact of behavioral roles on the environmental climate.
