    3- patient comfort rounds
    4- teaching rounds

    matrons' rounds, which can provide senior nurses with the opportunity to achieve key aspects of their role. these include ensuring professional and clinical nursing standards, improving infection control

    [font=book antiqua]-2-nurse management rounds
    this round involve the nurse in charge of the shift seeing each patient. and it gives the nurse manager an overview of the condition and needs of all the patients on the wards and the ability of staff to meet these needs. also these rounds have potential benefits for patients, relatives, for the nursing team and for other healthcare professionals.

    [font=book antiqua]-3-patient comfort rounds (pcrs)
    ( pcrs )are an important part of maintaining and monitoring the fundamental aspects of individual patient care. they should be carried out at 2-hour intervals whenever possible, commencing after lunchtime and continuing for the rest of the day. at night time, pcrs should be carried out before patients go to sleep and again in the early morning. it may be necessary to carry out more regular care to some patients. the purpose of pcrs is to maintain a regular review of the patient nursing needs, support the nursing process and evaluate nursing care.

    [font=book antiqua]-4-teaching rounds
    nurses learn in a variety of ways: through courses and accredited program's, seminars, conferences, self-directed study and so on. one of the most effective ways, however, is to participate in special clinical teaching rounds. these are aimed at all learners, whether pre-registration students or qualified staff. teaching round is to learn from direct patient contact with facilitation from an experienced nurse teacher. and also to teach and evaluate nursing care. it is useful in developing clinical practice, evidence-based care
