We’ve all been there.
Code Blue faux pas. I’ve decided that there should be some basic rules when running a code.
Not knowing what to do can be downright humorous sometimes. Everyone has that first time being in charge of the meds during a Code Blue.
Yes, I’m poking a lil’ fun at the lack of familiarity. During the ‘code’, bystanders and extra staff can sometimes be thrust into a role that they may not be ready for. Whether a lack of staffing, the emergency nature of the ‘code’ or the good ole’ fashion ‘close rule’, there are Nurses that will have to man the medications during one of the most stressful experiences as a Nurse (especially a NEW Nurse)
We stumble through which drawer has the correct medication and all of us have struggled with the ‘quick release’ medication box….
I’m poking fun…. because in a galaxy far, far away… I was once that Nurse.
This is my humorous way of helping you avoid my faux pas. May the force be with you.
P.S. Yes, there are rules to running a code blue and one of them is properly trained team members. This scenario is just a comical experience I’ve encountered. No patient was harmed during this experience.
