The study polled more than 150 hospitals to gather insights on clinical communications within the emergency room. Some of the findings include:
- A majority of emergency room employees reported more than 10 percent of patient care hand offs contain communication errors – errors that could endanger patient outcomes; 22 percent reported more than 1 in 5 hand offs involve errors.
- Emergency room staff ranked the most, and least, effective forms of communication; real-time, face-to-face communication is most used and most effective. Secure-text messaging came in second for valued communication, an asset in today’s healthcare system where specialists and other medical resources are often not on-site with the patient.
