Rapid response teams (RRTs) continue to be implemented in hospitals to prevent unnecessary cardiac arrests and reduce patient mortality. Although studies suggest that RRTs improve patient care, research is lacking on the perspectives of nurses who use them. This focus group study elicited nurses' experiences with RRTs in a community hospital. Study findings provide insights into why nurses believe RRTs achieve their intended purpose.
