Recently where I work as an RN we went from giving one to one verbal change of shift report at the nurses station, etc. (somewhere private), now we are told by administration it must be given at the pt's bedside and any info. that the pt. does not yet know or we don't want them to hear must be given outside the door. The problem is your standing there with a clipboard trying to write and alot of the nurses I think are uncomfortable with this and I feel I'm getting so little in report that I spend alot of time looking up important info I used to get in report. I have talked to my Boss twice to see if it would be okay to do the report the old way then introduce the oncoming nurse to all my patients, this was unacceptable. I just want to know does anyone else do report like this, any suggestions on how I could better adjust?
