End the Chaos. Reduce the Noise. Improve Patient Safety.

Allie is a nurse in a busy trauma center. She’s managing a half dozen points of complexity when the call comes in: An ambulance is on its way to the hospital, bringing in a young man who was just struck by a car.

As Allie works to care for an agitated patient, the EMT calls from ambulance with information about the incoming trauma patient, which Allie records on her glove with a sharpie. As the EMT delivers critical medication information, Allie is distracted by the agitated patient and, unknowingly, doesn’t receive the information.

Watch to see how a major mistake has been set in motion – and how such a mistake can be avoided.
