Pediatric patients are the one of the hardest patients to assess, since verbalization of precisely what they feel is a consideration and oftentimes results into crying schemes to let others know that something is wrong. In a pediatric facility it is important that the nurse establishes a good caring relationship with the family of a child since they are most of the time the ones calling the attention of the nurse regularly due to panic and irritability out of the patient’s condition. This is a very common scenario especially inside the emergency room, where every patient wants to be attended with the notion that their patient is an emergency case that needed immediate attention. With the bulk of patients an emergency room nurse has to attend, it is an impossible thing to be at the patient’s bedside all the time and watch the patient’s condition improves or worsens. Since level of nursing care has developed over the years, nurses have bridged through the impossible to provide patients with the best care and satisfaction. Nurses have developed a way to assess patients on a regular manner through a basis of a regular nurse rounding --intentionally checking on patients at regular intervals (Halm, 2009, p. 581). Since then, nursing rounds has been an important nursing tool that lets the nurse interact dynamically with the patient by attending to comfort, safety, and environmental needs that may prevent adverse events like falls, pressure ulcers, or unrelieved pain that contributes highly to patients’ total satisfaction
