bedside report design
Bedside Report Design

A retrospective analysis to analyze data from the previous

six month of patient satisfaction surveys

A retrospective analysis of clock-out times of 5S RN’s over a

six month period

A prospective analysis using convenient sampling to collect data from the patient satisfaction surveys

Nurses were asked to complete a questionnaire prior to and six months after the implementation of bedside reporting

Data was statistically compared to determine, if any, correlation existed between bedside reporting and patient satisfaction surveys

data analysis bedside report
Data Analysis: Bedside Report

Answers to the patient satisfaction survey were collected and plotted by the QI department to determine if there was increase in satisfaction after implementation of bedside reporting

Answers obtained from nursing questionnaires were evaluated to determine if RN satisfaction with the reporting system improved after implementation of bedside reporting

    • Did the staff on your nursing unit show respect for you and your child’s needs
    • How would you rate the overall teamwork of the hospital staff who took care of your child
