A literature review of nurses' attitudes, beliefs, and barriers regarding the medical emergency team (MET) process is limited to medical hospitals. How psychiatric nurses view the MET process and their prior experiences with METs are important because they are often the ones assessing the need for, and then calling, the MET. This article examines psychiatric nurses' attitudes, beliefs, and barriers toward the MET process in a 310-bed psychiatric hospital that is part of an urban academic medical center. Through the use of key informant interviews, nurses were asked for their feedback and input regarding the current MET practices. The results may be useful in improving the current operating system.
