The SBAR is designed to enhance the nursing evaluation of, and documentation for residents who have an acute change in condition. This tool is intended to help structure and improve communication with primary care clinicians.


Once a change in condition has been identified and it has been determined that a physician needs to be notified, a nurse completes the SBAR. SBAR is an acronym: 

  • SITUATION documents change in condition, signs and symptoms, when they started, things that make the situation better or worse and more
  • BACKGROUND documents resident/patient description, medication alerts, vital signs and physical and mental statuses
  • APPEARANCE prompts RN for an at-a-glance assessment or LPN to describe appearance of resident/patient
  • REVIEW and NOTIFY documents via convenient check boxes and written narrative requested response
  • Guides steps to take prior to calling a physician, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant for use by nursing staff
  • Convenient minimum order quantity of 100 per pad
