Journal for Nurses in Professional Development 2019, 35 (1): E1-E7
The Pit Crew Resuscitation model for team performance was designed to facilitate emergency team performance. This article documents observations during model implementation to the in-hospital setting. Low-fidelity simulations were evaluated on medical-surgical nursing units. Six significant findings were obtained: finder confusion, first responder chaos, leaderless teams, equipment disorder, limited space, and disjointed integration. Recommendations were developed and tested. Research is needed to develop training methods for in-hospital application.
