Suggested improvements of the general cardiology ward round – An opinion paper

Christian Bjurman, Tord Juhlin, Martin J. Holzmann


General cardiology ward rounds have become more complicated owing to higher production demands combined with continued efforts to improve patient safety. The traditional ward round is now outdated and needs changing to better suit the current environment. After describing the traditional ward round and some alternative rounding systems tested in Sweden, we suggest some simple measures to improve efficiency, patient-centeredness, and patient safety. This article is addressed mainly to health care leaders and physicians in a position to make changes to rounding structures and hospital organization. We hope that this analysis will prompt a debate that will lead to eventual improvements in health care and work satisfaction.
