The code blue team has to be educated through the provision of the program that is presented to all nurses, doctors and the other auxiliary staff.

Based on the case study, the nurse was supposed to have been around near the patient for her/him to take care of the patient. The case is traumatizing. It was expected that the nurse would be on the patient to inform the code team not to resuscitate the patient as stated. The code team assumed everything since the patient had no code.
