Abstract:
Promoting a Safe Patient Hand-Off Using an Electronic Medical Record
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2007
Author:Gilmore, Janet, MSN, RN
P.I. Institution Name:The Methodist Hospital
Title:Director Perioperative Services
[Research Presentation] Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) introduced a new National Patient Safety Goal for 2006 to implement a standardized approach to "Hand-Off" communication. The vision of The Methodist Hospital is to be the world leader for safety in patient care by 2010.á With that in mind, SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment and Recommendation) was adopted as the standard of communication for moving this vital goal into compliance. Challenged with numerous detailed reports required before a patient can be transferred to a nursing unit, the Post Anesthesia Care Units (PACU)á enlisted the assistance of Information Technology (IT), to design a comprehensive report that is sent electronically to the nursing units prior to sending the patient. The tool is created by extracting information from the PACU electronic medical record, creating an electronicáreport using the SBAR methodology that it is sent directly to the receiving unitÆs printer. A follow-up phone call is made to the receiving unit that confirms receipt of the report and allows for the requisite opportunity for questions to occur. Prior to this technology, being placed on hold, waiting for the busy nurse to answer the phone wasted many hours each day.áPrevious to this process, information was shared verbally and is now shared in an electronic fashion. The receiving unit now has the distinct advantage of a written document for reference and that information may now be shared with colleagues on the same shift or at shift change.
