Transfering Information In The Healthcare Setting

Satisfactory Essays
There are many methods of communication used to transfer information in the healthcare setting. There is SBAR, team huddle, and multidisciplinary rounds to name a few. SBAR is well known to most nurses. Everyone is very busy and there is a need to get information across quickly, yet, correctly. This is where SBAR comes in. In the middle, of the night the nurse may need to contact the doctor, but the doctor may only be somewhat familiar with the patient in questions. SBAR is a great tool to transfer information quickly in this situation. Once the patient has been assessed, and the nurse has the medication record and chart available, a call to the proper doctor can be made. “S” stands for situation. State the current situation suing 5-10 seconds.
