New rule at work. I think it was created by someone who has never provided patient care.
I'm finding it extremely difficult to implement. I find it hard to organize my thoughts when I don't have the chart in front of me, and to say everything in a way that doesn't overload and possibly scare the patient, but still adequately informs the incoming nurse. I also have trouble feeling I am adequately informed when I take report that way. Not at all sure it's a good idea. Doesn't matter what I think, though, I have to learn to do it.
