Description:
Of the many patients you have today, one seems unstable. Would you recognize a “pre-code” state?  If you suddenly you have a code blue on your hands, do you know what to do till the code team arrives?  It’s been estimated to take 3 to 5 minutes before the code team arrives at the bedside. Because those minutes are critical to the patient’s survival, staff on acute care units need to be proficient at responding to a code blue.  This webinar reviews the appropriate actions and interventions that staff in non-critical units  must perform during a code blue,  with a focus on the nurse’s role before, during and after the code team arrives. Join Holly Feist RN BN MN ACCN for this presentation and have all your critical questions answered.

• Nurses planning to seek positions in Acute or Critical Care settings
