The study showed that the time decreased by a minute per patient in a 12 bed cardiothoracic ICU. Jones and colleagues found that rounds "did not adhere to a particular format, schedule, or structure. The order of patient visits varied substantially during the 20 days of observation, following a certain bed order on some days (clockwise or counterclockwise) and reflecting staff or attending-physician preferences on others."
What order do you undertake a round? What order are the patients positioned in? Do you think this have any effect on their outcomes?
