Lastly, do anesthesiologists have to learn the hospital codes? or are those just for nurses and security?

I always hear these color codes being announced through the hospital speakers and I wonder who listens to them and if they're cancelled out in certain levels, like in the maternity level to let the mothers sleep, calm down, etc. ? #career #medical #anesthesiology

Everyone who works in a medical facility must know the codes established for their facility. These codes may vary from facility to facility. The codes are provided during orientation and are usually reinforced yearly or as any changes are made.

All staff in a hospital must know the codes. The good news is, there are only so many codes. They also print them on the back of your employee ID that you would be required to wear regardless if you are sweeping the floors or saving lives. You will have to memorize way more in med school . I have not worked for a hospital in over ten years and still remember the codes.
