Bedside Handoff

Bedside Handoff is a best practice recommended by the Joint Commission that improves patient safety and satisfaction.

Bedside handoff improves communication with patients and their families which leads to increased engagement and better outcomes for patients.

The team that has developed this process is comprised of staff nurse representatives from each inpatient unit and IT staff, to ensure the process is patient-focused and nurse-friendly. Bedside handoff is currently being piloted at Memorial and will be moving to all inpatient units over the next few weeks.
