Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Hospitals in the United States are faced with higher acuity levels, shorter length of stays and fewer resources. These conditions present many challenges to the healthcare system such as where to place resources and how to monitor quality. Failure to recognize changes in a patient's condition can lead to adverse outcomes, today this is referred to as failure to rescue. Failure to rescue is now considered a measure in the overall hospital performance. This poster presentation demonstrates how a small community, Magnet hospital utilized 2 initiatives, resuscitation and rapid response teams to avoid failure to rescue situations. Computer-based virtual education was used to familiarize staff with the code carts after complete house wide standardization of the carts. Competencies were completed utilizing the virtual code cart. The next natural progression was implementation of rapid response teams. Feedback to staff after 6 months post-implementation with code competencies enhanced the utilization of rapid response teams. All these efforts produced several great outcomes; survival to discharge after resuscitation 37%; coeds/1000 discharges decreased 38% and overall hospital mortality decreased to 2.49.
