Rapid Response Nursing Teams
The UK HealthCare rapid response team consists of critical care nurses who provide 24-hour coverage to all adult areas of the hospital.
The rapid response team makes rounds daily on patients transferred out of the intensive care unit (ICU) to acute care as well as responding to calls for patients experiencing signs of decline. We also have a dedicated rapid response team focused in our Kentucky Children's Hospital area.
All UK HealthCare rapid response nurses are certified by the American Association of Critical Care nurses as Critical Care Registered Nurses.
