To ensure continuity of care by improving the quality of communication between team members.
Why is Report Legend Right for your Organization?
Improved interdisciplinary communication. Nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, and other team members can all access the same shift report.
Improved continuity of patient care. Orders are carried over from shift to shift and the likelihood of care omissions decreases.
Repeated interruptions and digressing during hand offs causes accumulated down time for staff causing adverse outcomes for the patients.
Decreased overtime as time wasted during hand offs or shift change. Time required for handover will decrease due to elimination of the opportunity to digress to non-shift related conversations.
Improved staff accountability due to the access of hand off reports to management. The administrators, director of nurses, supervisors and the unit managers can review the shift reports at any time.
A decrease in incongruent information (information given at handover that is different from the actual condition of the patient). The archiving nature of the platform persuades the reporter to perform more due diligence prior to creating the report.
A decrease in omissions (information that if left out of the handover that could increase inefficiency). The archiving nature of the platform persuades the reporter to perform more due diligence prior to creating the report.
A reduction of time spent resolving issues from incomplete communication at handover. Overall improved communication between team members leads to cumulative transparency and awareness about the patient condition.
Reduction of preventable nursing actions: measured by, for example, double ordering or unnecessary telephone calls and general redundancies due to poor communication.
Up-to-date and accurate information to all team members at any time.
An opportunity to review the shift report once the handing party departs.
