Handover takes place between 21:00 – 22:00. All requests must be submitted using the HAN TRAK function as well as attending in person to give a verbal handover to the whole team. The information from TRAK will be displayed on a large screen and allocated to individual team member’s workbenches.
Please click on the video below to learn more about effective handover.
Communication is via two way radios and bleeps. The radio enables messaging on the move and ensures quick and constant communication between the team. The bleeps are used for emergency calls such as 2222 calls and major haemorrhage.
All requests to the Hospital At Night team are made using our online patient TRAK system and Junior Doctors are taught the order in which to perform a handover.
