Conducting rounds and teaching medical students in the presence of patients and their families yielded higher patient satisfaction, according to a study in the journal Pediatrics. Although completing family-centered rounds in inpatient settings took 20% longer, researchers found the model resulted in fewer frequent call backs from families or nurses. However, most student respondents said they are more comfortable holding discussions in a conference room and had concerns about appearing foolish in front of the patient.
