Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Implementation of a Rapid Response Team (RRT) supports the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) goal to save 100,000 lives by June 2006. This initiative is one of the IHI programs aimed at reducing the amount of unintended deaths. The development of an RRT at a non-profit teaching hospital supports Force 6: Quality of Care, by providing a culture of safety through rapid interventions when patient conditions deteriorate in the non-ICU setting. The team provides, within minutes, an interdisciplinary medical team approach to collaboratively assess and treat the appropriate patient population. The literature supports the enhanced quality of care and decreased mortality rates in hospitals utilizing similar teams. The RRT Sub-Committee was formed under the administrative direction of the Senior Vice-President of Nursing Services. The multifaceted group of professionals consisted of Nursing Directors, Nurse Managers, Nurse Coordinators, Certified Nurse Practitioners, Respiratory Services Director and Coordinator, and Critical Care Physicians. The committee developed a process to notify the RRT and specific clinical criteria to help hospital staff identify when a patient's condition warrants a call for help. Documentation forms were developed to efficiently and effectively capture the runs. The Sub-Committee collaborated with Nursing Clinical Resource Coordinators in developing and facilitating hospital-wide education. Performance Improvement indicators were identified and are consistently being tracked with outcome results shared with the appropriate healthcare professionals across our system. Results reflect a successful plan. The indicator results are also published on the 100K Scorecard as well as the Core Measure Scorecard. References: Landro, L. (2004, December 1).
