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.
