COVID19 RESOURCES FOR CCO/RRT
How many teams are Outreach and H@N together? We have just started a team that incorporates these two roles.Do people see it as two separate roles?
What I am hoping to address is that Outreach represent Critical Care around the hospital and H@N the parent team. How do teams wear both these hats at once? How does your referral system work? Is it different at night than in the day? Is there any confusion that needed to be addressed?
If you are a mixed team, how many beds do you have? How many referrals a month?
We are a 24/7 team here in Sunderland and don't incorprate H&N as routine ie looking after tracheostomies. We do see patients who trigger the NEWS from that speciality however the parent teams look after their own patients.
We have a bleep system in place for anyone Triggering the NEWS for referrals and also do A&E referrals to assisst in intubations only. We see approximately 150 per month. Apart from the follow ups we see on discharge from ICCU
The only difference in service is from 12midnight we cover the cardiac arrest bleep also until 8am
Hope this helps
