Code Status Video in the Intensive Care Unit: Video Assisted Patient Education
This is a single-center, randomized control trial of a code status video as an educational tool in the intensive care unit. Subjects are stratified by patient or surrogate and are randomized to either watch an educational video on code status or not watch the video. They are then asked knowledge base questions regarding code status as well as questions pertaining to comfort regarding code status. Participants randomized to watch the video are also asked questions related to acceptance of the video.
