• 24-hour reports are common in nursing homes, but information and format varies
• ICPs often use 24-reports for monitoring signs & symptoms of infection, antibiotic use
• Report standardization could enhance communication surrounding infection prevention efforts
Twenty–four-hour reports are filled out by nurses daily to monitor nursing home residents and document any changes in resident status. Semistructured interviews conducted with ICPs from 12 southeast Michigan nursing homes showed that although 24-hour reports were used, they were not standardized for infection prevention activities. Our results indicate 24-hour reports can be an effective communication tool and potentially aid in early recognition of infections and outbreaks.
