Condition MERT (Medical Emergency Response Team)
Notice a medical change in your loved one? Something just doesn't feel right?
MERT is a Medical Emergency Response Team and patient emergency hotline that patients and families can call from any hospital phone when there is a change in the patient’s condition and the patient or family is unable to get the attention of a health care provider. When hospital operators receive a MERT call, a rapid response team is immediately alerted to address the patient concern.
To activate a MERT, dial 7777 from any hospital phone.
