Title:
Perception of Process and Structure Readiness to Implement an Obstetric Emergency Response Team
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) BACKGROUND An obstetric emergency response team provides a formal process and structure for a multidisciplinary team to work in a coordinated effort and deliver safe and timely interventions during an obstetric emergency.  The successful implementation of an obstetric emergency response team requires an understanding of its importance, the support of leadership, and a team training approach to the education of the stakeholders. The purpose of this project was threefold: first to assess obstetrical team members’ perception of the process to implement an obstetric emergency response, second, to determine if the infrastructure is available to support an obstetric emergency response team and  third, to compare the results from two suburban hospitals within the same health system.  One of the hospitals had previously implemented an obstetric emergency response team. METHODOLOGY An investigator-developed survey, tested for face validity, was distributed to all attendees at team training sessions to help to assess participant perception of the process and structure readiness to implement an obstetric emergency response team. Data were compared between professional groups and between the two suburban hospitals.  RESULTS The majority of nurses from the hospital that previously implemented an obstetric emergency response team indicated that there was a consistent process and structure in place for an obstetric emergency.  More than half the nurses from the other hospital perceived that a consistent process and structure was in place.  Nurses and physicians from both hospitals were in agreement that a formalized obstetric emergency response team would facilitate timely intervention.  IMPLICATIONS Survey data will be used to develop an educational and implementation plan for an obstetric emergency response team in one hospital and to reinforce similar training in the other.  The data underscore providers understanding, or lack of, the differentiation between a specialty focused emergency response team and the existing hospital-wide rapid response team.
