Hand off information from pre op

  1. Hi,
    I was wondering how many OR nurses out there are getting a verbal report from the pre op nurse? Do you also do a written SBAR? Where in your process do you make time for report?
    I'd love to hear from as many different nurses as possible!

    No verbal report from pre-op or floor. If we go get them from ICU we will get a regular verbal report but other than that we just review the chart, get info from anesthesia, the admission assessment, and the pt of course.

    Yes. If I call during the end of the case before the patient to have them pre-op medicate with Versed, I'll ask for it then. If not, I get it face-to-face when I'm picking up the patient. If I won't see the nurse (transporter brings), I will just call for it at some time before, especially if they're on the floor. We also have a written SBAR when they come from pre-op. But I pay less attention to it.
