Rapid Response

Doctor attending family

Patients and families may call for immediate help in cases of emergency or if they have serious concerns about a patient’s condition. This is called a “Condition H.” A patient or family member can call a Condition H if, after speaking with a nurse, physician, or other member of the healthcare team, you continue to have serious concerns, such as a noticeable medical change, uncontrolled bleeding, unresponsiveness, or severe difficulty breathing.

To Activate a Rapid Response (Condition H)

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