So last night I responded to a code called in the spinal cord injury center. We (code team) arrived in the room to find a bewildered little old man, obviously not in arrest, sitting on a comode asking why on earth all these people where flooding into his room.
Turns out his nurse had called out to the new grad nurse at the nursing station:
"CAN YOU GET A COMODE?"
The new grad heard
"CAN YOU CALL A CODE!"
The new gad had called for the code and then went about her duties. The patient's nurse and the patient had no idea a code had been called until the code team came running into the room.
