INTRODUCTION: Few hospitals treat patients' tobacco dependence. To be effective, hospital-initiated cessation interventions must provide at least 1 month of supportive contact post-discharge. STUDY DESIGN: Individually randomized clinical trial. Recruitment commenced July 2011; analyses were conducted October 2014-June 2015. SETTING/PARTICIPANTS: The study was conducted in two large Midwestern hospitals. Participants included smokers who were aged ≥18 years, planned to stay quit after discharge, and spoke English or Spanish...

Psychiatric inpatient unit nurses implemented a quality improvement project to explore strategies to enhance the effectiveness of the change of shift communication between nurses and patients and obtain goals of care information. Three nurses championed a 6-month project to implement more efficient, patient-centered communication; influence patient outcomes; and assess nurses' perceptions about patient satisfaction. A survey established the level of nurse satisfaction regarding the length of time spent at change of shift obtaining patient information...

Patients' perceptions of satisfaction, understanding, participation, and feelings of safety were significantly correlated with the frequency of bedside handoff. Mean responses to survey items in these areas were significantly higher for patients who "always" experienced bedside handoff than for those who experienced it sporadically. Quality improvement strategies were effective in increasing the frequency of bedside handoff.

BACKGROUND: Inpatient service handoffs occur when physicians who care for hospitalized patients end a period of clinical service and handover a panel of patients to an oncoming physician. Despite the large amount of research on handoffs, none has described the patient perspective when cared for by a hospitalist physician during a service handoff. OBJECTIVE: To describe hospitalized patients' experiences regarding inpatient service changes, and develop a conceptual framework to inform future efforts to improve service-level handoffs...

Operating room (OR) to intensive care unit (ICU) handoffs are complex and known to be associated with adverse events and patient harm. The authors hypothesized that handoff quality diminishes during nights/weekends and that bedside handoff practices are similar between ICUs of the same health system. Bedside OR-to-ICU handoffs were directly observed in 2 surgical ICUs with different patient volumes. Handoff quality measures were compared within the ICUs on weekdays versus nights/weekends as well as between the high- and moderate-volume ICUs...

When Oregon Health & Science University Hospital began video handoffs when patients were being discharged to a skilled nursing facility, readmission rates dropped. The hospital nurse goes to the bedside and connects with the nurse who will be caring for the patient at the receiving facility. The program makes patients feel more comfortable about the new facility and gives the nurse a chance to meet his or her patient. The hospital also conducts educational sessions via videoconferencing for the staff at the skilled nursing facilities...

Bedside reporting continues to gain much attention and is being investigated to support the premise that "hand-off" communications enhance efficacy in delivery of patient care. Patient inclusion in shift reports enhances good patient outcomes, increased satisfaction with care delivery, enhanced accountability for nursing professionals, and improved communications between patients and their direct care providers. This article discusses the multiple benefits of dynamic dialogue between patients and the health care team, challenges often associated with bedside reporting, and protocols for managing bedside reporting with the major aim of improving patient care...

BACKGROUND: This paper describes fidelity monitoring (treatment differentiation, training, delivery, receipt and enactment) across the seven National Institutes of Health-supported Consortium of Hospitals Advancing Research on Tobacco (CHART) studies. The objectives of the study were to describe approaches to monitoring fidelity including treatment differentiation (lack of crossover), provider training, provider delivery of treatment, patient receipt of treatment, and patient enactment (behavior) and provide examples of application of these principles...

In 2009, the Joint Commission identified a standardized approach to handoff communication as a patient safety goal to reduce communication errors. Evidence suggests that a structured handoff report, combined with active patient participation, reduces communication errors and promotes patient safety. Research shows that bedside handoff increases nurses' accountability by visualizing the patient and exchanging information at the point of care. Based on recommendations from the Joint Commission, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and broader research literature, a standardized approach to bedside handoff and walking rounds was implemented on an inpatient surgical oncology unit...

Multiple institutions identify communication and shift-to-shift handoffs as a source of clinical errors. Conducting handoffs at the bedside has been proposed as a potential solution to improve the quality of communication at change of shift. This article reports a systematic review of English-language research articles, published between January 1, 2008, and October 31, 2014, focused on bedside shift-to-shift handoffs. Forty-one articles were identified and analyzed in this systematic review.

BACKGROUND: Kaiser Permanente implemented a new model of nursing communication at shift change-in the bedside nursing report known as the Nurse Knowledge Exchange (NKE) in 2004-but noted variations in its spread and sustainability across medical centers five years later. METHODS: The six core elements of NKEplus were as follows: team rounding in the last hour before shift changes, pre-shift patient assignments that limit the number of departing nurses at shift change, unit support for uninterrupted bedside reporting, standardization for report and safety check formats, and collaboration with patients to update in-room care boards...

In the pediatric critical care setting, change of shift report/handoff does not traditionally occur at the bedside. During report, the nurses share important information that promotes patient safety and continuity of care. The goal of educating the nursing staff about family-centered care and shift report at the bedside is to promote better communication, a more comprehensive handoff, enhanced patient safety, engagement of the patient/family, and increased patient/family and staff satisfaction.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To evaluate a new perioperative handoff protocol in the adult perianesthesia care units (PACUs). DESIGN: Prospective, unblinded cross-sectional study. SETTING: Perianesthesia care unit in a tertiary care facility serving 55,000 patients annually. PATIENTS: One hundred three surgery patients. INTERVENTIONS: During a 4-week preintervention phase, 53 perioperative handoffs were observed, and data were collected daily by a trained observer...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This article reviews the available literature that supports implementing bedside clinical handover in nursing clinical practice and then seeks to identify key issues if any. BACKGROUND: Clinical handover practices are recognised as being an essential component in the effective transfer of clinical care between health practitioners. It is recognised that the point where a patient is 'handed over' from one clinician to another is significant in maintaining continuity of care and that doing this poorly can have significant safety issues for the patient...

Bedside shift reports are viewed as an opportunity to reduce errors and important to ensure communication between nurses and communication. Models of bedside report incorporating the patient into the triad have been shown to increase patient engagement and enhance caregiver support and education. Nurse shift reports and nurse handovers are 2 of the most critical processes in patient care that can support patient safety and reduce medical errors in the United States. Nurses continue to not recognize the evidence supporting this practice and adopt bedside report into practice...
