✏Bedside Manners Book Summary : In beautifully crafted vignettes, physician and NPR commentator David Watts explores the world of modern-day medicine and reveals the emotional truths and practical realities at the heart of the doctor-patient relationship. Bedside Manners is an engaging, often surprising investigation into what happens when we sit down and talk openly about vital issues of health and mortality. Combining the grace and precision of a poet with the down-to-earth, compassionate manner of a doctor who deals with the problems of real people every day, Watts describes situations both odd and touching: the patient who stays awake during an endoscopy to ward off demons; the woman who recites poetry to get through a frightening treatment; the man who arrives at Watts’s office bearing Internet research on syndromes that have little to do with his own condition; and the seventy-four-year-old architect who faces a tough cancer diagnosis with dignity and courage. Readers will come away from these tales of difficult diagnoses, irreverent colleagues, brave survivors, and examining-room poseurs sharing Watts’s own sense of humbled astonishment. As he tells each story, Watts closes for the reader the protective distance many doctors employ, and touches all of us who have felt vulnerable in the position of patient. Refreshing, wry, and reassuring, Bedside Manners holds important lessons for both healers and those who seek their help. From the Hardcover edition.

✏Strangers at the Bedside Book Summary : This study of the transformation of the relationship between doctors and patients from the mid-Sixties to the mid-Seventies has acquired the status of a minor classic. In this paperback edition the author has added an afterword on patient autonomy that encompasses some more recent changes in the practice of medicine and the evolving field loosely, but inexactly, characterized as bioethics. He has left intact his portrayal of the earlier, epochal changes that are the subject of the book.

✏Evolving Shift Report to the Bedside Book Summary : The project that is being proposed aims to show through evidence-based research that bedside shift reporting is more effective in increasing patient satisfaction, patient safety, and nurse accountability compared to the traditional method of reporting at the nursing station. Bedside shift reporting promotes enhanced relationships between nurses and patients which creates an increase in communication. Verbal reports offer minimal communication between nurse and patient. Patients are often not involved in their plan of care of daily shift goals with traditional reporting methods. Patient safety, patient satisfaction and nurse accountability are compromised when the off going nurse is given report at the nursing station. Many patients often suffer for no reason because ineffective communication and patient safety is overlooked during a traditional shift report during the shift change. Financially, hospitals often feel the losses when major events occur to patients. A pilot study at Mount Eagle Community Hospital is being proposed on the 3 South unit, which is a medical-surgical unit. A bedside shift reporting pilot will be implemented using Lewin's Change Theory as the foundation. A hand tool will be created using evidence-based research on bedside shift reporting will be created to implement bedside shift report so that an effective report can be given to allow patients to become more proactive in their health care management. Bedside shift reporting increases the communication level between the patient and nurse; thus increasing patient safety and patient satisfaction. Nurses are more accountable to the patient at the bedside.

✏Capstone Project Book Summary : Patients and families in acute hospital settings want to bridge communication gaps between them and the nurses that care for them. Standardized shift report common practice is nurse to nurse communication involvement. The patient is not any part of that report. With the start of every shift, including the patient and/or their families will improve communication, thus improving patient satisfaction (Baker, 2010). The importance of handoff is written in the literature, and it includes patient satisfaction and even accountability of nurses where communication is done at the bedside with the patient doing safety checks. By using a bedside communication tool called SBARQ (situation, background, assessment, recommendations and questions), critical patient information is transferred from one nurse to another while including the patient in their own plan of care (Effken and others, 2011). Surveys on patient satisfaction that focuses on bedside report will be analyzed and will show improvements of patient satisfaction.

✏Fair Resource Allocation and Rationing at the Bedside Book Summary : Health systems need to set priorities fairly. In one way or another, part of this important task will fall to physicians. How do they make judgments about resource stewardship, and how should they do so? How can they make such decisions in a manner that is compatible with their clinical duties to patients? In this book, philosophers, bioethicists, physicians, lawyers and health policy experts make the case that priority setting and rationing contribute significantly to the possibility of affordable and fair healthcare and that clinicians play an indispensable role in that process. The book depicts the results of a survey of European physicians about their experiences with rationing and other cost containment strategies, and their perception of scarcity and fairness in their health care systems. Responding to and complementing these findings, commentators discuss why resource allocation and bedside rationing is necessary and justifiable. The book explores how bedside rationing relates to clinical judgments about medical necessity and medical indications, marginal benefits, weak evidence based medicine, off-label use. The book highlights how comparative studies of health care systems can advance more effective and fair bedside rationing through learning from one another. From a practical standpoint, the book offers a number of strategies for health care systems and clinicians to work in tandem to allocate and ration resources as fairly as possible: how to foster more attention to fairness when rationing at the bedside, how to avoid exacerbating health disparities when allocating resources, how to teach about bedside rationing to students, how to discuss rationing more explicitly in the public arena and in the doctor's office.
