9 February 2018 (Friday) - Code Red
I’m currently on a secondment to a sister hospital (do hospitals have sisters?) As part of a familiarisation of practice, today I took part in a simulated code red emergency practice. I say “took part in”, the entire thing was staged for my benefit.
I can’t deny that when on night shifts (or on duty at any time) I live in terror of a ”code red” emergency happening. Following today’s little simulation I feel somewhat less anxious about them.
That’s not saying I’m entirely confident about the concept, but the exercise was very useful. I’m glad I did it.
