Early Warning Scoring

Can your care givers on the General Ward react quickly to subtle signs of deterioration? The indications of a patient’s clinical instability typically occur six to eight hours before an adverse event.

 

Large patient volumes and limited staffing can make it hard for care providers to know which patients to watch more closely.

 

Early intervention puts time on your side. With IntelliVue Guardian Solution, Early Warning Scoring (EWS) can help you spot patient deterioration quickly and send proper notification to Rapid Response Teams.¹
