The Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) consists of five hospitals, each with a Heart and Vascular Center (HVC) procedural department providing varying types of interventions in the specialties of Interventional Radiology, Cardiac Catheterization, and Electrophysiology. A system- wide Advisory Committee made up of stakeholders from the HVC procedural areas at each delivery network identified safe patient handoff as a goal for standardization throughout the system for 2022. Providing consistent patient information and opportunity to seek clarification during handoff is a best practice for patient safety during transitions of care. This poster presentation session will describe the successful development and implementation of a standardized nursing handoff note at YNHHS, utilized during handoff of patients from the procedural areas to the patients’ next level of care.
