Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: In 2004 and 2005 attention was placed on reducing mortality. One method of achieving this goal was to institute a rapid response team for medical emergencies. With the successful outcomes of our medical rapid response team based in critical care, our hospital has implemented specialized rapid response teams for the following areas: emergency department (ED), behavioral health services (BHS), and postpartum/antenatal. These specialized teams provide proactive assessment, early intervention and stabilization for patients and prevention of clinical deterioration. A call for response is initiated at the discretion of the direct care nurse. Behavioral Emergency Response Team (BERT) de-escalates potentially volatile situations with mental health patients on medical units promoting safety and reducing occurrences of aggressive episodes. In 2006, BERT was initiated 12 times resulting in deflection of code grays. In the ED, incidents of failure to escalate interventions for specific patients resulted in poor clinical outcomes. As a result, the ED developed it's own internal rapid response team - Code Critical. Implementation has resulted in a decreased door to physician assessment time. Postpartum/Antepartum Resource Team (PART) improves care of our obstetrical patients admitted across the organization with primary medical surgical, or behavioral diagnoses or critical care needs. By activating obstetrical nursing consults comprehensive care which considers the gestational needs of both mother and fetus are enhanced. These teams have been well received by staff RNs and provide invaluable support to care teams responsible for patients presenting with multiple specialized needs.
