Red Alert
What does RED ALERT or RED LIST or CODE RED mean in hospitals?

My brother is 17 years old and is suffering from mild autism. He is just now admitted in the hospital for a very large pimple. They plan to do surgery and scoop flesh out. They have placed him on RED ALERT or RED LIST or CODE RED. I am not sure what any of these terms mean. Can anyone please comment on this. Thanks.

Codes vary by hospital. In my hospital, a Code Red indicates a fire. The best way to find out what a code red indicates at the hospital you speak of is to ask someone. It may be that if your brother has behavior problems or is at risk in someway (perhaps he needs a higher level of supervision for his safety?) than using a phrase such as code red is a way of communicating this to his healthcare providers that is more politically correct and also protects his confidentiality. Hospitals use many such codes to indicate people who are at risk for many reasons – risk to fall, risk for confusion (like an elderly patient who has dementia), or risk for self harm.
