Abstract (Summary)
Prior studies mainly concern the function, practice, content and relevance of the shift report. When it comes to care in the shift report no scientific literature were found. The authors of this study consider care to be just as important as medicine in the patient care. The aim of this study is to shed light on care in the nurse-to-nurse shift report. An observational study was carried out in six divisions at a hospital. The data was recorded on tape to be transcribed, analyzed and interpreted. The results imply, through categorization into six main themes and ten sub themes, that care is evident during the nurse-to-nurse shift report. Patient’s condition and which actions the nurses had executed were reported, as well as what the nurses, who were about to start their work shift, had to perform and keep in mind. The information being shared in the nurse-to-nurse shift report is in this study interpreted as care seeing that it make a good patient care possible.
