Brief description High numbers of patients suffer an adverse event or die in hospitals needlessly. Summoned by a set of pre-specified criteria, a Medical Emergency Team (MET) rapidly respond to patients on general wards to prevent further deterioration. Previous studies have shown its impact on reducing cardiac arrests but limited high level evidence on reducing hospital deaths. Current study uses linked administrative databases and well-established indicators to assess the impact of introduction of a MET in NSW.
