What makes a good handover?


Even when I am handing over to the night shift I would still handover the information on care packages at home as they are the ones that are handing over to the following day shift. Unfortunately handover can be a little bit like Chinese whispers and a lot of information can get lost down the line. If I am on a ward that hasn't got a handover sheet and I have already created an SBAR for a patient - I just hand this to the next shift.
