There is a dearth of literature that specifically addresses the handover reporting process among healthcare staff working in children's Emergency Department (ED). Widespread gaps in service provision, such as gaps in communication in handover reports to ambulance staff have been noted in the general literature on the topic. There are also improvements observed in handover when a structured mnemonic was encouraged. Structured reports improve communication, safety and may reduce medication errors. Thus, the improvement of handover reporting in children's ED has important implications for children's healthcare practice. However, little is known about communication processes during handover reports in Italian children's ED or its consequences for errors or risks.
