Impact of structured interdisciplinary bedside rounding on patient outcomes at a large academic health centre.

Sunkara PR, Islam T, Bose A, et al. BMJ Qual Saf. 2020;29(7):569-575.

This study explored the influence of structured interdisciplinary bedside rounding (SIBR) on readmissions and length of stay. Compared to the control group, the odds of 7-day readmission were lower among patients admitted to a unit with SIBR (odds ratio=0.70); the intervention did not reduce length of stay or 30-day readmissions.
