BED-SIDE NURSING REPORT 2
Shift from Nursing Report on Nursing Station to Bed-Side Nursing Report
Bedside shift reporting is one of the ways of reducing errors during patient treatment.
Importantly, this system increases patient satisfaction, improves their safety, and enhances
communication among nurses during shift changes (Gregory, Tan, Tilrico, Edwardson, &
Gamm, 2014). Additionally, it has been shown that the use of bedside reporting increases
patient’s engagement, which enhances caregiver support and education (Sand-Jecklin &
Sherman, 2013). Given the numerous advantages of bedside reporting over the contemporary use
of nursing report in nursing stations, healthcare officers should embrace this method to improve
the quality of their healthcare services.

primary focus. In both cases, proper communication among the healthcare professionals and
between them and the patient is essential for effective treatment. According to Judymae, Maura,

patient handoffs, which can result in medical errors. Ordinarily, handoffs of the patient occur
across care settings and from nurse-to-nurse during shift changes (Cairins, Dudjak, Hoffmann, &
Lorenz, 2013). Therefore, the use of a bedside shift report can reduce errors and improve
communication between patients and nurses.

errors in the files cannot be easily detected, unlike in the case of a bedside nursing report. For
example, the bedside nursing report enables healthcare officers to confirm the accuracy of the
previous shift’s report, during handoffs, by visualizing the patient and performing a baseline
