The new way of ward rounds

At the department of Internal Medicin at Kungälvs sjukhus in Sweden the institutional ward round no more exists. We have developed a model that narrows the gap and faciliates the colaboration between the different heatlth professions taking part in the ward round. The rounds have become more more effectivly run giving better medical care. We are now seeing the patient at the wardstations, not in multibed rooms, securing the patient integrety and giving a chance for the patient to participate in his own care. Today we try to listen more carfully to story of illness from the person who became a patient.
