The Advantages Of Bedside Reporting

Satisfactory Essays
I enjoyed reading your discussion post regarding bedside reporting and agree bedside reporting is an excellent example of evidence-based practice. The SBAR tool was originally developed to improve communication between nurses and physicians (Cornell, Yates, &Vardaman, 2014). Moreover, given the impact SBAR had on nurse-physician communication, bedside reporting utilizing the SBAR tool is now evidence-based practice for nurses (Cornell, Yates, &Vardaman, 2014). Bedside reporting gives nurses and patients’ opportunity to set mutual goals. I agree that evidence-based practice can be simple changes to improve the health and safety of our patients. Have you found that bedside reporting also reduces hospital readmissions?
