Taking the rapid response team to a new level

At Vanderbilt, families can call the RRT:

When a family member in a patient's room suspects their loved one's condition is rapidly worsening or a serious new health concern is developing, their instincts are often correct.

A new system at Vanderbilt gives families a powerful tool to quickly call for help.
The Family Initiated Rapid Response Team program is a lot like calling 911, but when a family member dials 11111 from a Vanderbilt patient's room, a LifeFlight operator dispatches the rapid response team.
