The nursing team is now enabled to do more of what they love... provide quality care for patients. Standardized handoff and daily communication not only saved time, it also decreased information and communication errors, reducing risk to quality of care and patient safety.
Role clarification for case managers, charge nurses, and others reduced duplication of tasks and increased staff engagement and satisfaction.
