Intensivist needed for Mount Sinai Hospital Rapid Response Team!
The Rapid Response Team (RRT) attending physicians have clinical responsibility in a service that is dedicated to providing early intensive care style intervention in non-ICU patients in order to reduce their likelihood of needing to be transferred to an ICU and to reduce their overall morbidity and mortality. The RRT physician will be responsible to evaluate, treat and triage patients throughout the hospital in conjunction with the RRT NP, RRT respiratory therapist, Critical Care fellows and other health care providers (e.g., primary medical doctor, intensivists) as necessary. Procedures that might be required at the bedside include ACLS, cardioversion, central venous catheterization, arterial line insertion, tracheal intubation, thoracentesis, chest tube insertion, paracentesis and lumbar puncture. Excellent multidisciplinary skills, outstanding communication, flexibility and the ability to make decisions in a fast paced high risk environment are essential.
