Hello, I work in a Medical office as a LVN in a small time. The office is family practice, peds, and OB GYN. When we have a code blue everybody goes to the code, so picture 10 MD, 4 LVNS, and 50 MAs responding to a code. CAn someone please tell me how I can implement a code team. There is no policy in place except for everyone to respond which is just RIDICUOLUS! I would like to know how other sites do their code teams. I need to know how many pople are assigned to a team.
How often do you get code blues in a family practice office???
In addition to the above poster, I would suggest creating a formal schedule for those who are designated code responders for the day. Post this daily or create it in advance and attach it with the schedules. You should also hold an inservice about the proper way to run a code according to your facility policy so that no matter who is on the team, it runs smoothly.
