We do it on our floor and it has it’s good and bad points. I like it overall because I like to let patients know Im leaving and they are in good hands and to be introduced when Im coming on, it also gives them a chance to tell you anything the nurse giving you report may have missed, like things they wanted you to know… BUT our hospital is getting hardcore and wants us to wake people up to do it… Im NOT a fan of waking them up @ 645am for that, and of course there are some things you shouldn’t say in front of patients and some patients you shouldn’t talk in front of at all. Overall it is a good thing though, I like it, I think being in the room and seeing everything leaves me open to asking more questions in report about what I see and perhaps less things being missed.
