What is your role as a Patient Care Technician during a code? by Mind Map: What is your role as a Patient Care Technician during a code?

1. Objectives

1.1. Clear identification, primary responsibilities, and position related to the patient during a code

1.2. Improve self-confidence

1.3. Discuss role of a tech during a code

2. Disclosure

2.1. None

3. Literature Research

3.1. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4563641/ http://www.clinmedres.org/content/12/1-2/47

3.1.1. Research and prepare experiment

4. Survey

4.1. a. What is your role during a code? b. Is it clear where you are to be positioned during a code? Yes/No? c. Do you feel confident in your skills specific to your assigned role during a code?

4.1.1. New vocabulary

4.2. Results: a. Common theme: Performing CPR, runner for supplies, connecting the patient to the monitor b. Mostly no c. Mixed result

5. Gap

5.1. little information that is available about a code team role identification and definition particularly for a tech

6. Discussion

6.1. Code Blue

6.1.1. As a valuable member, could you think of some tasks that you can do after watching the video?

6.2. Calling a code

6.2.1. Code button

6.2.2. Calling 777 or depends on the hospital policy/protocols

7. Conclusion

7.1. Identifiable roles and clear is a key in a successful code

7.2. increased access to mock code or simulations is beneficial

7.3. Take a tasks you can perform successfully

7.4. clearly state when you need help
