Response by author Edward R. McAllen to Christa Mock on “Moving Shift Report to the Bedside: An Evidence-Based Quality Improvement Project” by Edward R. McAllen and colleagues (April 9, 2018)

Ms. Mock,

Thank you for your response to our article and I applaud your inspiration to become an advocate for Bedside report (BSR). There are many great articles in print and more coming out each year on the best practices of BSR. I would recommend you take advantage of the writings, get a group of staff nurses and possibly your manager together to review the articles and begin discussing the best way to implement the process at your hospital. As you have read there are many great examples of how BSR can be accomplished. My recommendation is to get a group of staff together and maybe a manager who are excited about the idea of BSR. Meet frequently and discuss how BSR can best be accomplished in your hospital, using the options discussed in the articles and chosen by the staff. This will give you early staff buy-in and assist in keeping the project momentum moving forward towards BSR.

Good luck,
Dr. McAllen
