Bedside rounding and clinical examination has been an integral part of medical education and patient care for centuries. With the advent of computers and regulatory requirements for documentation by insurance carriers and third party providers, bedside rounding time has consistently decreased over the past several decades. Several studies have attempted to address the most effective way of bedside rounding, but no definite conclusion has been reached. We suggest multi-center broad base studies of key stakeholders to address this challenging issue.
