Include a Pharmacist on Code Blue Response Teams
You'll see renewed focus on reducing med errors during a code blue.
Med errors are common during codes due to high stress...lack of organization...and knowledge gaps. But these errors can be minimized.
Organization. Give your code cart a makeover. Ensure IV fluids and vials are separated with easily seen labels...and all med drawers have the same layout. Include a photo or diagram of the drawer for reference.
