Teamwork is essential to providing safe hospital care, yet few studies have evaluated efforts on general medical patient care units. O’Leary et al conducted a controlled trial of an intervention, Structured Inter-Disciplinary Rounds (SIDR), implemented on 1 of 2 similar medical teaching units in a tertiary care academic hospital. The intervention combined a structured format for communication with a forum for regular interdisciplinary meetings. A retrospective review of 555 medical records, using both a concurrent and historic control, found a significant reduction in the adjusted rate of adverse events (adjusted rate ratio, 0.54 [P = .005] and 0.51 [P = .001], respectively). The authors conclude that SIDR is an effective strategy to improve patient safety on general medical patient care units.
