i work in a 32 bed surgical ward. we tape our report. all nurses on next shift have a patient list with name, age, dr, how many days post op, operation, diet, then blank space to fill in whatever we want to take from the tape ie. when meds last given, next due, results, allergies, mobility etc.
after report we divide the patients between us and if a nurse wants to add anything not already on tape she/he will come in and tell us or catch up with us after report.
we find it works better than a verbal handover as there seem to be more interuptions and it takes longer.
