Rapid Response Team Record with SBAR

Baystate Medical Center
Springfield, Massachusetts, USA


Both the primary nurse for the patient and the Rapid Response Team nurse have responsibility for completing the form when a Rapid Response Team call is initiated. The form then becomes a permanent part of the patient’s medical record. The Rapid Response Team record includes approved protocol orders that may be initiated by the Rapid Response Team nurse.

The SBAR (Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation) tool is printed on the back of the form and is used as a guide for the primary nurse when calling the physician to ensure that concise, pertinent information is reported.
