Abstract

This review of literature sought to find the best practice for nurse rounding in hospitals in an effort to reduce hospital-related complication (falls, pressure ulcers) and improve patient satisfaction. Current research shows a growing trend toward hourly rounding centered on addressing basic patient needs, also known as the 4 P's (pain, potty, position and presence). See abstract for more details.
