Hospital Code Blue Response

It is vital that medical institutions respond quickly when a “code blue” or cardiac/medical emergency is declared. This typically means a patient is experiencing a medical event that is potentially lethal and requires immediate attention. A digital solution with a clear process for accessing staff as quickly as possible is highly necessary. 

SimplyCast presents the idea of the code blue use case, a complete solution that has been designed to create a straightforward process for managing the response to code blue emergencies. 

The solution is intended to be used by administrators of hospitals and other medical institutions that need to have a cardiac/medical emergency response plan. Here is how each type of user would interact with an automated code blue solution. 

The Code Blue Process 

SimplyCast anticipated the need for medical institutions to have a straightforward and quick to launch process for handling urgent medical emergencies. 

Within this process, administrators have three steps to follow, and hospital staff have just one: 

Administrators – Step 1 

An administrator starts the code blue process by launching a pre-defined code blue event and sends out an alert to staff with the details of the code blue emergency, requesting specialist staff if necessary 

Hospital Staff – Step 1 

Relevant staff receive the code blue alert and respond accordingly, receiving automatic confirmation of their response. The solution will automatically alert staff if someone else has responded, allowing only those needed to respond without the inconvenience of handling miscommunications. 

Administrators – Step 2 

Administrators can monitor the responses and updates provided by the hospital staff as time passes, and can advance the scope of the emergency if necessary, requesting more nurses or a different specialist. 

Administrators – Step 3 

When the medical emergency is resolved and it has been verified by the appropriate personnel, hospital administrators are able to send another notification alerting all staff that the situation has been resolved that the situation has been resolved.
