Official Title Analysis of In-hospital Emergency Team Calls in a German Tertiary Care University Hospital From 2013 to 2016
Brief Summary A retrospective analysis of 1,664 emergency forms from MET activities, ranging from January 2013 to December 2016. Every MET activation call via the emergency telephone number ("5555") and following emergency treatment was recorded by a standardized documentation form.
Detailed Description Recent studies demonstrated that in-hospital emergencies are linked to a higher mortality in patients. In total, 1 out of 10 patients is suffering from an unexpected incident during the hospital stay. Therefore, establishing and developing medical emergency teams (MET) is getting more important in the future. Aim of the present study was an analysis of medical documentation, operational tactics and procedures taken by MET in a 4-year-period, ranging from 2013 to 2016. A retrospective analysis of 1,664 emergency forms from MET activities, ranging from January 2013 to December 2016. Every MET activation call via the emergency telephone number ("5555") and following emergency treatment was recorded by a standardized documentation form.
