Critical Care Outreach Team
The Critical Care Outreach Team are experienced nurses who work daily with the ward based teams to help deliver the best care available. They identify those patients who are deteriorating while in hospital and link in with the critical care doctors to see if additional care can be given.
They also prepare a patient for stepping down from critical care to a ward and support the ward with this change. The Hospital at Night team provide some aspects of this role during the night.
