Intentional rounding—an integrative literature review.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
This review examines international evidence on the role nurses play in implementing intentional rounds. The authors explore areas of impact, including patient satisfaction, falls, and hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, and conclude that benefits have been realized from enhanced rounding practice, but further research is needed. They offer implications for practice and highlight the role of leadership, research, and education in reducing the negative expectations of rounding initiatives.
