ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the importance of handoffs from the emergency department (ED) nurses to inpatient units and how they are improved. Fairview Health Services senior quality consultant Sommer Alexander maintains that any patient is likely to have a death associated with a handoff. Meanwhile, three factors are highlighted with which handoffs are ameliorated including the use of a single conference call in giving a report and conveying of the same information to everybody.
