The SBAR provides safe communication when passing off information from caregiver to caregiver.
This is a modified example my instructor gave on the SBAR:
Dr. Pangelinan, this is Flora Cruz, RN, I am calling from Borja Hospital about your patient Rai Perez.
Here’s the situation: Mr. Perez is having increasing dyspnea and is complaining of chest pain.
The supporting background information is that he had a total knee replacement two days ago. About two hours ago he began complaining of chest pain. His pulse is 120 and her blood pressure is 126/55. He is restless and short of breath.
My assessment of the situation is that he may be having a cardiac event or a pulmonary embolism.
I recommend that you see him immediately and that we start him on O2 stat. Do you agree?
