RMOs will typically work primarily with the surgical inpatients, conducting regular ward rounds and ensuring that all patients are well looked after. Any changes in a patient’s condition are reported to the consultant and their direction is followed in respect of further treatment.

The RMO is the designated resuscitation team leader in the event of a cardiac arrest, and for this reason all doctors are required to obtain and maintain their adult and paediatric resuscitation certificates. In addition to this, NES runs annual refresher courses and the hospitals conduct regular scenarios.
