Abstract:

Rapid response teams (RRTs) are widely implemented in hospitals today. Little research exists in the use of RRTs in the pediatric population (Chan et al., 2010; Pringle et al., 2011; Winberg et al., 2008). Regardless of these findings, children experiencing acute clinical deterioration receive highly specialized monitoring, equipment, medications and trained staff to manage the clinical instability.

This research using a retrospective, pre- and post-intervention, descriptive design determined the pediatric rapid response team (PRRT) role in reducing code events and mortality in pediatric patients outside the ICU in an academic setting. The number of pediatric code events and PRRT events were determined for the years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The incidence density of pediatric code events and mortality prior to PRRT implementation was compared to the same outcomes post-intervention of PRRT. Other outcome measures included transfer to a higher level of care, remained on non-ICU unit after the code or PRRT event. The findings from this research demonstrate the PRRT decreased transfers to a higher level of care, code events and mortality of pediatric patients outside of ICU setting during the study period.
