    Greenclip, what is it you are referring to when you say "we have that in pacu"?

    I suppose making a note who you hand off to is good. Except, the other nurse could still deny you gave them report. Yes it is sad.

    lunch break handoffs

    Anyone here have a facility that uses a hand off note for lunches and breaks that requires the nurse taking report state or sign off in some way showing they have agreed to watch the patient while the primary nurse is on lunch or off unit? We recently had a nurse on lunch break give report to another nurse. Unfortunately the patient had a sentinel event while the primary nurse was on lunch. The nurse who took report and agreed to care for the patient isn't owning up to being in care of the patient. We need a way to hold each other accountable in situations like this.
