Abstract

Rapid Response Systems (RRSs) have been widely implemented as a patient safety strategy to respond promptly to antecedents of clinical deterioration and avoid failure to rescue. There are many crucial roles within an RRS, although the optimal RRS team composition has yet to be determined. Numerous tools have been developed to aid in early recognition of at-risk patients, but much research is needed to define a standard. Individual examples of successful RRS have been published and can be modeled for widespread deployment, but each health system is unique, and further investigation is needed to understand how to implement them optimally.
