Patient Safety & Quality: Rapid Response Team

The Rapid Response Team is in place to assist patients, families, visitors and staff when emergency assistance is needed.

Should a patient's condition change dramatically, extension 8400 is dialed and a team consisting of a nurse manager or nursing coordinator, advanced practiced registered nurse, and respiratory therapist responds immediately to perform an assessment and any necessary treatment. This year MidState implemented the family-activated Rapid Response Team, allowing a patient or a patient's family member the ability to call a Rapid Response Team if there is a change in patient status.
