Handover procedure

Please note that some flexibility is required regarding the handover process, as some trauma centres would prefer handover with the patient still on the stretcher.

This recommendation has come from ITIM‘s Trauma Team Training course.

If you have concerns over the stability of the patient, oxygen supplies etc, then please state your preference to transfer prior to handover – and the reasons why – politely to the team leader. Otherwise kindly comply with the team’s preferred sequence.

Many thanks for your flexibility.
