• In this course we will talk about communication,

to ensure that healthcare professionals
communicate effectively with each other. This
type of communication is necessary in order to
avoid errors and ensure your patients receive
quality care.

Page Title: Meet Joe
Hi I'm Joe. I'm a patient care
tech at Getwell hospital. I just
started and things haven't
been going well so far. Several
accidents have happened and
my patients have suffered.

First Objective-screen2
Page Title: Communication
My boss said that I need to work on my
communication skills but I don't see how that could
be the problem.
Look at the following hand-off I had with Jane the
other day.
"Hi Jane,
Thanks for coming to get Mr.
Winkler he's all ready to be
taken up. I'll see you later."

Page Title: Patient Fall
Shortly after this Jane tried to
transfer Mr Winkler to a

dropping him. The next day
she yelled at me for not
telling her about Mr Winkler's
assistance needs.

My boss said that poor communication is a primary
cause of patient errors. According to one report from
the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals, 70
percent of patient error cases were due to
communication. Of the cases reported in this study, 75
percent of the patients died as a result of these errors.
With numbers like this, I can see why communication is
the Joint Commission's second goal in their National
Patient Safety Goals. This goal requires that facilities
implement a formal approach to communication at
The act of passing
responsibility for a patient
to another person.

Page Title: SBAR Job-aid
In order to use SBAR effectively you must include
all of the components in your hand-off
conversations. Some policies facilitate this level of
communication by requiring formal reports to be
generated and provided at hand-off; however, not
all departments/units have these requirements.
I've created a SBAR job-aid that you can use if you
