The Rapid Response Recognition Report is a quarterly recognition of providers who are “remarkable examples of excellence” during rapid response events at UNCMC.
Effective utilization of the Adult Rapid Response System at UNC Medical Center is essential in the early detection of clinically worsening patients, to ensure necessary resources are mobilized and adverse outcomes prevented. Rapid response events require teamwork, collaboration, closed loop communication, and respect for each other. UNC Medical Center’s Adult Rapid Response System has announced the “Rapid Response Recognition Report” for April 2022 through June 2022. The following are stellar providers who demonstrated remarkable examples of excellence.
CTSU team and Respiratory Therapy
Gita Mody, MD, MPH and Thomas Gudzik, PA-C
“I want to thank everyone for good teamwork and communication during the Rapid Response on CTSU with a patient who had unstable tachycardia and required cardioversion. Thank you Dr. Gita Mody for help leading the rapid and having clear direct communication with the staff. Thank you Thomas Gudzik PA for your quick decision making and ICU interventions while the patient was waiting for a bed in TICU.” – Liv Lunardo, RRT RN
Gabriel Odando, RN, Alex Boomer, RN, Laura Mundt, RN, Kristian Eanes, RN, and Miriam from RT
“Thank you Gabriel Odando RN, Alex Bloomer RN, and Laura Mundt RN, for helping out the primary nurse and documenting during a CTSU Rapid Response. Thank you Kristian Eanes RN for being a great primary nurse. You kept your cool and gave us all of the information we needed to do the cardioversion safely and calmly. Thank you Miriam RT for being on standby and a second set of eyes and ears for patient’s airway during the procedure.”
“I had a Rapid Response that included Dr. Sasha McEwan as bed commander from SICU and she did a fantastic job of identifying herself and talking through her thought process during the Rapid. She made sure to debrief before she left the room and made sure everyone including primary team, Rapid RN and primary RN were comfortable with the plan. She did a great job. Thank you!” – Brittany Davis, RRT RN
