Keep it brief. ONLY THE FACTS, Ma'am. If necessary, you may need to make a "form" outlining the pertinent facts needed for shift report. REALLY a shift report should not take longer than 15-30 minutes, no matter how bad a floor you are leaving. It' s usually lolly-gagging and chit-chat that makes it go longer, and I don't have the time. Unless the floor is a mess and impossible to leave (e.g. unstable), 7:30 a.m. comes, I am OFF THAT CLOCK. I don't waste others' time with bullpoop in report and I won't let them waste mine, even if it means gently and kindly guiding them back to the facts.
Try the form/outline to see if it helps. You know, the basics, such as vital signs, significant changes since last shift/ brief synopsis of med hx and/or why person is on your unit, treatments/labs etc. due and any results that must be passed on, IV's running, and/or other drips, foleys, etc.....you know the deal.... It is not rocket science, just some of us make it such. Good luck.
