Abstract

Interdisciplinary rounds provide a valuable venue for delivering patient-centered care but are difficult to implement due to time constraints and coordination challenges. In this article, we describe a unique model for fostering a culture of bedside interdisciplinary rounds through adjustment of the morning medication administration time, auditing physician communication with nurses, and displaying physician performance in public areas. Implementation of this model led to measurable improvements in physician-to-nurse communication on rounds, teamwork climate, and provider job satisfaction.
