improved patient and staff satisfaction. Benefits of BSR tool Clarification of significant information Physical examination of patient and environment/ safety checks Improved nursing accountability/ teamwork Improved patient and staff satisfaction Reduction of hand-off related errors (Ferguson & Howell, 2015)(Zou &

Preparation Oncoming RN arrives on time to prepare for report. This means before 0700 or 1900 Report begins at 0700 or 1900. Introduction Off going nurse uses AIDET (Acknowledge, Introduce, Duration, Explanation, and Thank You) to introduce oncoming nurse to patient and family Update Whiteboards with correct information o Other team members may be present (CNAs, RT, Lab, etc). Information Exchange

Use of SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation) Use of simple terms and language that patient and family will understand (including use of interpreter services as needed), avoid using medical terms that patient is unfamiliar with (i.e. NPO). WOW (Workstation on Wheels) present during bedside report utilized to clarify any information. Patient Involvement Give patient and/or family the opportunity to ask questions related to care, clarify exchanged information, review plan of care/ goals for the day including expected hourly rounding. Safety Scan Review the patient, environment, AND EHR (Electronic Health Record) bedside. o Patient Assessment: Visually inspect any and all incisions, wounds, .dressings, drains, catheters, IV lines. o Environment Assessment: Visually inspect IV pumps, oxygen, bed alarms, suction equipment, fall mats, call light and personal belongings within reach. Make sure bed is low and locked in position. o EHR: Review of medication administration record to verify all medications have been given and documented correctly, vital signs, I&Os, etc.

Specific Aim Statement Through implementation of a standardized bedside report tool, 95% of twelve-hour night shift nurses on the medical surgical unit at Woodland Healthcare will demonstrate proper quality bedside report at shift change by August 15, 2017. Methodology Lewins Theory of Planned Change Unfreezing: Presented evidence-based research during huddles, gained stakeholder interests, addressed staff barriers, provided education to staff. Moving: Monitored and coached staff during BSR. Act as resource for support/ mentoring. Refreezing: evaluate BSR utilizing competency checklist, postimplementation survey results of staff and patients. Enact sustainability plan. Identification of Barriers Pre-Implementation

Survey Nursing Survey Results Time constraints Nursing attitude/compliance HIPPA violations Language barrier Patient compliance Timeline Gantt Chart Summary Report Evaluation of Outcomes What I learned In the process of collecting post- The importance of flexibility and
