Rapid Response Team

Early response to changes in a patient’s condition may reduce cardiopulmonary arrest and patient mortality rates. The Rapid Response Team (RRT) is accessible for supporting a change in the patient’s condition.

The RRT may be requested by anyone, including patients or family members. The team will initiate appropriate care in collaboration with the patient’s physician, as warranted by the patient’s condition.
The RRT consists of:

  • Critical care RN
  • Respiratory therapist
  • Administrator on Duty (AOD)
  • Patient’s nurse
