Hey all, our hospital started a new policy where the ER nurses don't have to call report on the patients coming to our floor- they can choose if they want to call report. Most don't call report. It is up to us to find this patient and research all about them before they get to the floor, hopefully. Most of the time, they show up before we know they are coming. It is very frustrating and unsafe, we don't know anything about what we are walking into. I work on a medical telemetry unit, with usually 5-6 pts per nurse, it's hectic and busy no time to be clicking through a computer on a new admit. From what I understand this is a trial to test out this new policy, I am hoping it doesn't last. It seems the only one that benefits from this new policy are the ER nurses, it's definitely not ideal or safe for the patients... Anyone experienced this sort of thing? Thoughts? Thanks.
