The impact of the medical emergency team on the resuscitation practice of critical care nurses.

Santiano N, Young L, Baramy LS, et al. BMJ quality & safety. 2011;20:115-20.

This study found that medical emergency team (MET) nurses spent more than half their time engaged in ongoing assessment and re-evaluation of risk. However, only 4% of their time was spent establishing patient acuity, the primary focus of METs, suggesting the need for training to support these functions.
