Wait!!!

Don’t take or give another handoff report until you use this nursing report sheet template.

Handoff report is one of those areas that I tend to spend a LOT of time with new grads.  My preceptor did the same thing.  I remember for about the first month with her she had me do the following:

  • Fill out the above report sheet for each patient
  • Make me give her mock report on each one
  • Correct the errors
  • Stand over my shoulder while I gave report

If I were to be honest . . . I hated it . . .

In retrospect, I couldn’t thank her enough for the focus and effort she put on helping me learn how to give a proper report.
