Houston Methodist Implements Proactive Nurse Practitioner Rounding Using The Rothman Index

Highlights Summary

  • Houston Methodist’s Clinical Emergency Response Team implements proactive use of the Rothman Index (RI) for patient rounding
  • Houston Methodist Hospital reduces failure to rescue rates by 22 percent and transfers to ICU post Rapid Response Event by 14 percent through early identification of patient deterioration
  • PeraTrend Champions Meeting provides forum for team members to share stories of “safe catches” for continued improvement

PeraTrend helps us identify patients who are ‘smoldering,’ the ones who appear to be fine but have unseen threats that may not be visible until it’s too late.
