New videos highlight interdisciplinary rounding on Saskatchewan hospital units

HQC Posted on Monday, May 8, 2017 1:00 AM

This “best practice” form of patient rounding has been shown to reduce length of stay, keep patients safer, and improve teamwork and staff satisfaction. A pair of new videos – featuring care teams on Pasqua Hospital’s Unit 4A (Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region) and the Surgery Unit at Moose Jaw’s FH Wigmore Hospital (Five Hills Health Region) show how a variety of different health professionals come together to contribute to a patient’s care for the day and communicate with the patient about that plan.
