Each intern was involved in more than 300 handoffs during an average month-long rotation
A hand-off is the passing of responsibility for an inpatient from one intern on the service to another intern on the same service at the change of shift.
I very much welcome your contributions and am always happy to see them. As an intern, there are only three ways that one can be relieved of responsibility for a patient: discharge, death, or "transfer to psych" - and this last is somewhat mythical, in that stories exist about it but no one has even seen it occur. Things may be different now
De todos modos, hasta donde recuerdo, enfermería suele decir 'Ahora no molestes , estamos haciendo (o dando) el pase'
