80% of the inner clinical rescucitations are avoidable and are associated with a bad outcome to patients and wastage of crucial ressources like ICU-beds ore high costs for further treatment. Therefore, we´re started a project to implement a medical emergency team in the ASKLEPIOS General Hospital in Schwalmstadt, Germany, with the goals: lesser unplanned inter-clinical admissions to the ICU, a better basic life support by nurses and now lesser inter-clinical emergency situations. The medical emergency team should work as an early and preventive working emergency team. So it´s verry importent to find a strategie for good education and acceptance by the whole different clinical specialists to get the best teamwork. This paper shows, how to implement this project successfully and points the cornerstones in change management. But the first results after one year implementation period shows a reduction of inter-clinical emergency situations and more safe feeling nurses in managing emergency situations.
