Abstract:
PURPOSE: Record numbers of new nurses entered practice at Cleveland Clinic over the past two years. The majority of these nurses were new grads without previous experience in acute care or emergency response. Anecdotally, the nurses working on internal medicine units expressed apprehension about their role in an emergency "code blue" situation and frequently requested code blue education. The "Code Blue U" curriculum was created by the CNS and Nurse Educator to meet the educational needs of these nurses. Description: The objective of the 4 hour class Code Blue U class is to increase the bedside nurse's comfort with the roles, equipment, and procedures necessary during a code blue situation. The class is presented in an interactive multi-media format and includes the following components: The Code Blues: Pre assessment of comfort level, review of crash cart with hands-on cart seek-and-find, the Down-Low on Documentation, drug Pushers: drug box review with opportunity to mix medications and program the IV pump, shock and awe: defibrillator review, to code or not to code: review of organization-specific resuscitation status regulations, family presence: the great debate, the amazing race: recognizing changes in patient status, and mock code: hands-on opportunity to practice. Teaching strategies such as short lecture, open dialogue, humor, PowerPoint presentation, demonstration, and hands-on practice are utilized to accommodate different learning styles. EVALUATION: Participants are anonymously surveyed regarding their comfort with skills associated with a Code Blue such as initiating CPR, mixing medications, performing defibrillation, and documenting events. Participants rate their comfort on a Likert scale of 1-not at all comfortable to 5-perfectly comfortable, bring it on! prior to and after attending class. Post-class surveys consistently demonstrate increased comfort levels with each aspect queried (mean increase in comfort level across all queried aspects was 1.47).
