“What Top Performing Hospitals Do to Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival”
Saxe Healthcare Communications* presents…“What Top Performing Hospitals Do to Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival”
Currently, the nationwide survival rate for an in-patient cardiac arrest event is only 25 percent. Opportunities exist for hospitals to improve the cardiac arrest team’s performance and survival rate based on the 2018 American Heart Association (AHA) published “Get with the Guidelines” (GWTG) Cardiac Resuscitation Registry. The guidelines, derived from resuscitation data from hospitals nationwide, examined protocols and processes the top, middle, and bottom quartile hospitals have in place for cardiac arrest response. In-depth interviews were conducted at the facilities with physicians, nurses, administration and other support staff. Not surprising, top performing hospitals had major commonalities. This webinar will discuss what contributes to a top performing hospital resuscitation rate and how it can be implemented in other facilities.
Learning Objectives | Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss the value of performing mock codes
- Discuss the importance of delineating team roles
- Discuss alternative to resuscitation training
