Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:
Medicine today is complex and the amount of information used in your care can be overwhelming. That's why we use a system of passing that information nurse-to-nurse and nurse-to-doctor that has been proven to be most effective. Called "SBAR", it stands for "Situation", "Background", "Assessment", and "Recommendation". This keeps communication concise, clear and is geared to our goals for your care. Soon, doctors who see you here will use the same system.
