Nursing report is usually given in a location where other people can not hear due to patient privacy. Most nurses use the SBAR tool as a guide to help them give report, which is highly recommended.
It is usually written on in pencil and updated by every shift. Although a SBAR is a great tool, the oncoming nurse should still ask the reporting nurse important questions regarding the patients status that may not be included in the SBAR. Questions to Ask During Nursing Report: Does that patient have any family?
Does the patient have any type of testing that they must be NPO for? Does the patient need assistance eating, showering, or using the bathroom? How does the patient take their pills? Swallows them or needs them crushed? How is the patient tolerating their new medications? Any major changes in Blood Pressure, Heart Rate etc?
What PRN medications does the patient have? Does the patient have pain? How are we controlling the pain? Medications, if so with what? When is it due next? Is the patient a telemetry or non-monitored patient? Does the patient leave the room and go outside? How well does the patient walk on their own?
When was the last time the patient was out of bed? Is the patient hard of hearing or have difficulty seeing? Are there any outstanding doctor orders that need to be completed?
Does the patient have informed consent signed? If patient is having surgery Is IV tuding dates still in date or do they need to be changed today? Above are some questions that may or may not be addressed in the SBAR and are good thing to always know but may be left out in report. Remember to always ask questions when getting report.
