ISBAR concerns the logical sequence for transferring patients information. The five letters stand for Identify (identify the patient and responsible doctor), Situation (explain the patient’s condition), Background (hand over the patient’s medical and social background), Assessment and Action (provide the patient’s clinical condition and state what have been done in the earlier shift), and Recommendation and Readback (explain what have to be done and hand over the accountability to the incoming nurses).
