This survey of academic intensivist physicians found that although most reported participating in end-of-shift handoffs, the handoff process varied across institutions. Satisfaction with handoff procedures was suboptimal, and a significant proportion of respondents could recall an adverse event related to handoffs. This suggests that despite extensive work in this area, handoffs remain a persistent safety vulnerability.
