Are Rapid Rescue Teams The Answer? When a patient’s condition deteriorates by Patricia Iyer, MSN, RN LNCC @avoidmederrors @patiyer #nursefriendly #nurseup

Are Rapid Rescue Teams The Answer? When a patient’s condition deteriorates by Patricia Iyer, MSN, RN LNCC @avoidmederrors @patiyer #nursefriendly #nurseup:”Failure to rescue is a term that describes the outcome when a patient’s condition deteriorates before the changes are recognized and acted upon. Failure to rescue is a nursing-sensitive performance measure on the list of 15 identified by the National Quality Forum in 2004 to be collected by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). A 2009 study performed by HealthGrades showed that patient safety incidents with the highest incidence rates were failure to rescue. There were 92.7 incidents (per 1,000 population). Starting June 1, 2010, CMS began collecting data about a facility’s failure to rescue rates.”
