4 Important Things To Take Note Of For Effective Nurse-Patient Communication
The backbone of the success of any nurse is by maintaining good relationship with their patients. Nurses have to interact with their patients for most of their shift. As such, there are several considerations for effective nurse-patient communication.
One of the things you should avoid include talking bad about another caregiver in front of your patient. You might be thinking that you’re just warning your patient about another caregiver’s tendencies. But remember this, you’re setting up your patient to expect a negative experience in the hospital.
Another thing you should stop doing during your shift is to discuss personal matters with your colleague while attending to your patient. Doing this during your rounds will make your patient feel that you are not fully attentive to their needs.
