The medical world is a vast network of many moving parts. If you work in a hospital, doctor's office, medical laboratory, or other health-related business, you know just how many departments, staff, and specialists it takes to provide proper patient care.
In a study conducted by CRICO examining 1,160 medical malpractice claims and suits, it was found that "42% reflected communication breakdowns" (Hoffman and Raman, 2012). Of these communication breakdowns, many were a lack of accurate or specific record keeping. Basically, between the physicians, nurses and other support staff, communication broke down at some point, leading to misinformation or lack of proper information.
A Tip for Quick and Clear Communication
Most of the time, doctors and other medical staff are working on a time crunch. This makes face-to-face verbal communication time limited. That's where proper nonverbal communication is essential. One of the most effective ways to communicate information is by correctly labeling important information in patient's files and on their medical and dietary schedules.
Information has to be clear and specific so that the physician or aid can now in seconds the important information about the patient. That's where colorful medical labels can really serve as a communication aid.
