team work job interview question

  1. 0 sorry but I really don't understand this question when you get asked ' give me an example of when you have been involved with good teamwork' in an interview.

    I understand they want me to display that i able to work in a team effectively but can't think of an actual example even though I do this probably on a day to day basis.

    Could an example simply be a patient fell and I asked their nurse if they needed assistance?

    I would try to think if you've been involved in a situation where a patient was circling the drain, or re-organizing the stock room. Something like that. Where you just jumped in and helped without being asked. It doesn't necessarily have to be in the hospital.

    Have you ever been involved in a code or rapid response? That's teamwork there, if I ever saw it. Or maybe there was a code going on and you circled the unit, answering call bells and checking on patients, doing extra vitals, etc. while the primary nurse was responding to the code?
