Hospitals manage a lot of different patients daily, and occasionally run into issues. An example being a physically or verbally violent person acting out. This can be a challenge to deal with, and it is important to communicate the situation with other staff members. In the moment, things can be chaotic, so it is critical to have a plan already in place and ready to go. Automation can help make this entire process much simpler and allow the code white to run smoothly and as planned. SimplyCast presents the Hospital Code White Use case, designed to help medical facilities ensure their response is as effective as possible.
The digital solution makes use of several different tools, such as an alerting system that uses several channels, dynamic response tracking, and a centralized dashboard. All of these factors help staff respond appropriately to the code white and resolve the issue as quickly as possible. This solution allows them to discreetly alert other staff members of the active code white, monitor the affected areas, and verify when the incident has been resolved.
Benefits of a Digital Solution
Managing code white emergencies can be a lot to handle, especially without any form of assistance. Therefore, it is key to communicate the status to other areas of the hospital and ensure the appropriate staff members are available to come help. It is also key to keep everyone informed when the incident has been cleared up, so those involved can return to their other tasks. The automated solution brings many improvements, but we have chosen our top 3 to outline for you today.
Send On-Call Alerts
The solution will manage on-call schedules and shifts using the centralized database, meaning that appropriate actions can be taken when the emergency occurs. The system will be able to recognize who is actively scheduled, and which staff are on-call, and will send out notifications accordingly. This helps avoid the manual task of figuring out who is available and calling those who are at home and on-call, asking them to come in and assist.
When a code white is identified, the administration can launch an event that will alert all relevant staff members of the ongoing incident. The solution makes use of pre-defined plans and built-in on-call scheduling, so staff members will instantly be sent out notifications related to their roles, and general staff can also be made aware of the situation.
Follow Up Forms
After the code white has been resolved, any necessary follow-up forms will be sent out automatically. Additional forms such as confirmation requests of patient reassessment, or the updating of charts can also be sent. Automation helps make this process much faster and keeps staff members from having to manually send out each form on their own.
That’s all it takes to create an effective code white response system for hospitals and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using digital technology to improve communication notifications.
