You are receiving shift report from the day nurse, who states the following: “Room 32 is Mr. Jones, a 48-year-old male who had a transurethral resection for prostate cancer yesterday. He is currently having continuous bladder irrigation. He is alert and oriented, his vitals are stable, and the physician came in this morning and didn’t give me any new orders. The patient’s wife spent most of the day here but left after she and Mr. Jones got into an argument about their son’s decision to go to a local college rather than taking a scholarship to a Big Ten school. It was pretty intense for a while.”
1. Evaluate how the nurse giving you the report used the SBAR tool. How could the tool be used more effectively when giving this shift report?
2. What critical elements of the shift report are missing?
