Our hospital has gone the way from verbal report to handoff in the computer. As time has gone on, a lot of the nurses write the most minimal of report. If the doc has written their note, at least you knew why the child came in and what they did for them. The latest is put hand off in the computer and send the child up. (at change of shift, of course) 9 minutes from the call that report was in to the child being on the floor. No time to set up at all. Not time to prioritize how sick the child is. Last week I walked into another nurses room because the IV pump was beeping. It was sitting on the bed. Nurse did not know the patient was there and the IV pump had not arrived. What is the practice in your hospital?
