Practical Guide to Safer Handoff of Older Adult Patients between Long-Term Care Facilities and Emergency Departments
These valuable guidelines provide emergency nurses, long-term care nurses, and emergency medical services professionals with tools to ease the development of standardized communication processes to improve older adult patients’ handoffs.
The guidelines include sample customizable forms, recommended data elements to include on a patient handoff form, best practices, resources available, and more.
The development of the Practical Guide to Safer Handoff of Older Adults Patients was funded by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, New York University School of Nursing, as part of the REASN (Resourcefully Enhancing Aging in Specialty Nursing) project.
