Nurse shift reporting practices are critical to time spent by caregivers on ‘direct’ care to patients and to control costs of patient care. This pilot study will investigate the nurse shift electronic reporting system currently used at a medical-surgical unit at a hospital located in South East Texas. Nurses involved in shift changeovers will be observed and relevant data to evaluate the efficiency of the process will be collected and analyzed. Follow-up interviews will be conducted to develop recommendations to improve the shift reporting process. Findings of the study will provide strategies to hospitals in the United States to incorporate ‘best practices’ in their nurse shift reporting process.
