Using care plans to replace the handover.

Abstract

This article describes the attempts of an NDU to make better use of written nursing care plans. It had been found that care plans were used more as historical records than as they were intended--to direct and plan care. The author outlines how staff identified the problem and then used primary nursing to enable the care plan to replace the oral handover.
