A brief overview of the current state of Code Blue outcomes and challenges related to these will be presented. Patient experiences and real-event debriefing descriptions will be reviewed to bring forth examples of areas where we can and should improve current state outcomes for patients and healthcare team members. Panelists will share their experiences and recommendations for best practices for improvement (with each panelist presenting for 3-4 minutes max). Interactive discussion will then follow where comments, concerns, questions and experience sharing will contribute to the reflections and flow of this session.
After participating in this educational activity, attendees should be able to:
1|Discuss the current state of Code Blue outcomes at Baystate Health
2|Review challenges leading to chaos during Code Blue events
3|Describe best practices for overcoming Code Blue challenges to improve outcomes for patients and healthcare team members
