Abstract (Summary)

Patients and families play an important role at the bedside, and that is making sure the transition of care among providers is safe and effective. Bedside shift report (BSR), a type of patient and family engagement, is a process where patients, families, and health care providers work together as partners to improve the quality and safety of hospital care. In 2010, TJC developed and revised the standards for patient-centered care, which were designed to improve the safety and quality of care for patient and family involvement. The purpose of this quantitative descriptive study with a causal-comparative design was to compare two dependent variables of patient and nurse satisfaction from the pre-and post-implementation of BSR as a patient and family engagement strategy and determine if BSR resulted in a positive return on investment for a health care organization. This quantitative descriptive study employed Donabedian’s structure-process-outcome (SPO) approach model. This model is a foundation for modern health care quality measurement, studying the structures of process and outcome, and the means to an end of a relationship. The data analysis utilized both descriptive and inferential statistics. The mean and standard deviation were calculated on two dependent variables, nurse satisfaction and patient satisfaction. Both research questions were measured using Chi-square to compare the difference in the yearly data for patient satisfaction and nurse satisfaction pre-and post-implementation of BSR as a patient and family engagement strategy on a surgical unit. The dependent variable patient satisfaction is statistically significant and the dependent variable nurse satisfaction is not statistically significant. Each year, post-implementation BSR for both dependent variables had a positive trend.
