Code Medic overhead emergency calls will end May 19

Beginning May 19, Code Medic overhead emergency calls will end at the UNC Medical Center. The code medic team will now receive their calls via their Vocera device. If you need to call a Code Medic, please use the emergency line (4-4111) or use the “call emergency” command on your Vocera device.

This change in practice is being implemented after extensive testing of the system by the Resuscitation Committee.  The 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.  More details will be shared as additional phases are implemented.
