Happy 1st Birthday to Kingston Hospital's Resus Team

Thursday 7 February 2019

Resus Team

4,000 resus patients seen at Kingston Hospital in last 12 months

It has been a year since the new Resus Team was set up within the Emergency Department (ED) at Kingston Hospital.

The team consists of 8 members of staff ranging from paramedics to emergency care nurses.  They work 24/7 and provides support and leadership in the management of acutely deteriorating patients and cardiac arrests. In addition they provide support and training to teams across the hospital in advanced resus and trauma.

Since January 2018 the team has cared for 4,000 of our most acutely unwell patients.

Stella Davey, ED Matron, Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said:


“By bringing paramedics and senior nurses together we now have a dedicated Resus Team in our Emergency Department and they consistently help us save lives day by day.

“I am very proud of what we have been able to achieve in the last 12 months.  The team’s hard work, clinical excellence, commitment, care for patients and for one another has been amazing. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible and a very happy first birthday to Kingston Hospital’s Resus Team!”

Notes to Editors

  • The Resus team has undertaken a great deal of training and development advance resus courses, trauma courses.  They also devised a trauma course which they ran in November for nursing staff.

 

  • They are currently completing an ITU placement to gain expertise in caring for our ventilated patients, so when these very sick patients arrive into ED Resus they are met by the Resus team to ensure prompt, safe, excellent clinical care.
