Lowell General Hospital has a special team of caregivers who supports clinicians, patients and families when assistance with care is required. Though we encourage you to communicate your concerns with the nurse, our Rapid Response Team can be accessed in a complicated medical situation or when an urgent medical situation exists. Once activated, a team of medical professionals is alerted and will arrive in the room to assess the situation. In offering our families the Rapid Response Team option, we want you to know that you are our partners in care. If you have questions, please discuss them with one of our healthcare providers.
If a noticeable medical change in the patient occurs and you need help, dial “0” from any hospital telephone and ask for the Rapid Response Team.
