Healthcare facilities can be very hectic making it difficult to keep track of which patients staff have rounded on recently. Staff rounding allows staff to visit patients and pertinent team members in patient care areas on a consistent basis to engage in meaningful conversations about their care.
For the patient, staff rounding helps focus on safety, perception of experience, cleanliness, wait times, pain control, and communication with healthcare providers. For staff members, rounding is an opportunity for the nurse leader to witness adherence to safety initiatives and the use of communication tools, such as rounding dashboards and call lights.
Easy to view dashboards allow staff members to know if patients are in their room prior to staff attempting to round on the patient only to find the patient not in their room, which leads to staff efficiencies and time saved. Rounding threshold times can be assigned by department or each individual room, allowing for flexibility to set the correct rounding threshold per patient based on the patients’ care needs. When rounding is performed consistently, patients feel well cared for within a safe environment.
