Abstract

PURPOSE
This study develop a Video Recording-Based Standardized Handoff (VRSH) program at shift change for ward nurses. METHOD: The study was conducted in five medical, three surgical, and one comprehensive nursing care service wards affiliated with a secondary general hospital. In this methodological study, the VRSH program was developed between April and December, 2017. It is noted that 65 nurses who were involved in the VRSH program participated in this study.
RESULTS
In line with the modified Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation tool, the VRSH program consisted of three phases. In the VRSH program, the average time for handoff duration was 3-5 minutes per patient. More than 90% of the ward nurses were satisfied with the VRSH program since it benefited them by reducing overtime work and improving the performance, as well as effective communication, of nurses. The content analysis of nurses' VRSH program experience, revealed three categories and eight sub-categories.
CONCLUSION
This study provides evidence that the VRSH program improves effective nursing performance and, the handoff communication and relationships between nurses. Future studies on large sample sizes and multiple settings are required to substantially evaluate the impact of the VRSH program on clinical outcomes.
