Behavioral Response Team overhead calls will end June 5

Beginning June 5th, Behavioral response team (BRT) calls will no longer be announced overhead at the UNC Medical Center, except during times when Vocera is down.

The team will now receive these calls via their Vocera device. If you need to call a BRT, please continue to use the emergency line (4-4111) or the “call emergency” command on your Vocera device.  This change in practice is being implemented after extensive testing of the system.  The resuscitation committee plans to transition all emergency calls to the Vocera platform in the future, in an effort to provide a quieter care environment for patients, families, and staff.
