Video: Caution about patient hand-offs in the ED

Kudos to Dr. Vineet Arora (Univ of Chicago) on creating a great video on the importance of clear, concise, and updated hand-off information on patients. This is especially important in the Emergency Department where patients are constantly being “signed out” to other residents for continued acute care. Whatever hand-off process you are using now, we can always do better.

I thought this video was especially timely given that today is the first day of the new (academic) year for residents! Let’s be extra careful out there.
