Rapid response teams (RRT) are activated, typically by nurses, when a patient demonstrates signs of imminent clinical deterioration, in order to prevent death or transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU). This study asks ICU managers about their perceptions of RRT beyond the stated goal of preventing patient deterioration. They describe the RRT as providing valuable education for new nurses and physicians and enhancing cohesion between the ICU and other wards. However, nurse managers stated they wanted more data and feedback from executive leadership.
