Expanding Code H for Patients & Families

Code Help, or Code H, is a patient- and family-activated safety system for patients that supplements existing care. It’s been in place at Providence since 2013, and expanded to cardiac units 5A and 5B on August 1, 2018. Patients and families who have questions about their care plan, or notice a serious medical change that’s not being addressed, can activate Code H and get connected to the Critical Care Outreach Team (CCOT), 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
