Abstract (Summary)

The bedside nurse is usually the first to assess deterioration in a patient status. When the bedside nurse's clinical judgment determines the need for advanced intervention the rapid response team (RRT) may be initiated. RRT provide interventions for the patient's declining status prior to a cardiac or respiratory arrest. The purpose of this study was to examine the support the bedside nurse experienced when the RRT was initiated. The study proceeded at a large urban Midwestern hospital. The convenience sample of participants were 10 bedside nurses. Descriptive qualitative data were obtained through interview of eligible participants. The core concepts discovered from bedside nurses perceptions were benefit, support, lack of support, and education during RRT response.
