So theres a pretty lively discussion going on here about "why don't you just read the chart" in regards to finding out the info that one wants from report.I've always understood report to be the engagement between caregivers and patients in order to sail smoothly along a continuum of care.A few things from the other thread jumped out at me. First, that someone giving report would "guess" what the other person wants to know. Maybe here we can give each other some insight to take the guessing out of the game, split the difference and meet half way. So tell us... where you work (what kind of unit.. what kind of patients you have) and what things you expect to hear in report. Example:I work in hematology/oncology: mostly heme malignancies and blood disorders. When I get a patient from the ED, I want to/must know (in addition to the normal assessment stuff):Are they febrile? If yes, what did you do about it? Antipyretic? Icepacks? nothing?Were they cultured down there? If so where? Peripherally? from a line? What time?What were there critical heme and electrolyte labs and what did you do about them? Give blood? give electrolyte replacements? did nothing?Are they actively receiving treatment for their disease? I don't care if you know what it is... but did they get chemo/radiation/biomods this morning... yesterday..?Did an oncologist direct their care in the ED/ICU/Wherev?If not...who did?I know this won't be a super comprehensive list but maybe some of our opinions can help others who struggle to know what is relevant to other units and what is not.
