Activate a Condition H

Condition H allows patients and families to call for immediate help in cases of emergency or if they have serious concerns about a patient. A patient or family member can call a Condition H if, after speaking with a member of the healthcare team (e.g., nurse or physician), you continue to have serious concerns about your or the patient’s condition, such as a noticeable medical change, uncontrolled bleeding, unresponsiveness, or severe difficulty breathing.

To activate a Condition H:

  1. Dial ext. 7828 from any hospital phone
  2. Identify the call as a “Condition H”
  3. Provide the patient’s name and room number
  4. Press the nurse call bell
  5. The operator will activate the Condition H Rapid Response Team
