Developing and evaluating a trigger response system

Cherry K, Martinek J, Esleck S, Ivory A, Logan R, Ward J. Developing and evaluating a trigger response system. Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety. 2009 Jun;35(6):331-338.


A streamlined, organized, real-time trigger response system was developed that enabled quality measures targets to be achieved, including decreased response time. The simultaneous versus sequential trigger response process fostered a team approach to patient safety that leverages the clinical expertise of nursing and respiratory therapy. Implementation considerations, process improvements, and early outcomes are shared.
