Patient Centered Rounding in an Inpatient Pediatric Setting

Other Titles
Abstract

Clinical Medical Librarians at Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM), Samuel J. Wood Library provide unique health literacy services for patients, families, and caregivers on the phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health pediatric floors of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) by conducting twice weekly patient rounds and bringing consumer health information and services to bedsides. Although in its infancy, the Pediatric Consumer Librarian Service (PCLS) generates statements of appreciation from patients and parents, enthusiasm among stakeholders, and reports of increased job satisfaction by librarians. We report on experiences, methods, feedback from users, and plans for the future.
