1Unit’s Nursing Change of Shift program focuses on key nursing shift change processes such as change of shift huddle and bedside handover. Optimizing these processes can help staff to ensure more efficient preparation of key patient information each shift.

The program guides staff through 1Unit’s Change of Shift Huddle and Bedside Handover processes. Gain access to our standardized templates and tools that make nursing huddle and shift handover flow efficiently at the patient’s bedside.

As a result of implementing the program, nurses report feeling better prepared for their shift, less uncertain about their patients needs and prepared to provide critical higher-order thinking to the rest of the care team when rounding. Also, nurses report finishing their shift on-time more regularly.

Reduce process variation using our ‘Process Reports’ feature. In addition, affirm staff competency with the new handover process using our Bedside Handover Skills Assessments. These assessments provide real-time, personal, objective and specific feedback for individuals.

Track staff progress with these new processes throughout your hospital, including your nursing float pool, using the 1Unit App.

Utilize the 1Unit Nursing Change of Shift program to start your bedside nurses on a pathway to proactive care. Subsequently, use this program as a stepping stone towards full ACU implementation.
