5 Reasons NOT to Skip Pre-Shift Meetings
2- Communication: In any human environment, change is constantly occurring, and the hospital is no exception. In the business of physical health and well-being, it would be imprudent to leave any important information, changes, or updates to word of mouth. In the setting of a shift huddle, everyone hears the same information at the same time, considerably reducing the opportunity for miscommunication. Upcoming deadlines, temporary safety measures, case studies, and daily updates (who is the house supervisor? who from unit leadership is present today? who is leading the critical response team? did anyone bring snacks?) are generally delivered here. The overall result is a clear relay of crucial information in a timely manner. Hard to argue with that.
