To my CCU nurses out there - I have a question for you. I am an experienced nurse transitioning into my role as an education coordinator for my hospital, however I am BLS trained and have only responded to a FEW codes as a floor nurse.
Part of my role is running mock code-blues, RRTs, and stroke alerts (etc) with a few other educators and MDs. We have run into a myriad of problems and learned a ton from the experience. I am turning to you to see if you have any ideas for what we should be teaching the nurses who are the primary nurses or first responders (or both) to report to the MD or resident who is in charge of the code so they know what is going on clinically. Ie: reason for admit, when they were last known to be normal, what prompted the code, DOB, last VS? What would you recommend?
