Early Warning Systems: Scorecards That Save


Lives
For the past few years, the Institute for Healthcare
Improvement (IHI) has challenged hospitals across the United
States to reduce cardiac arrests and other sudden, lifethreatening events in patients on general medical floors by
implementing a system of Rapid Response Teams.
Such a system involves empowering staff nurses, and
in a small but growing number of hospitals a family
member, to summon a designated group of clinicians
to a patients bedside to critically and quickly evaluate
signs of a worsening condition. Steps can then be
taken to head off the worst, including transferring the
patient to an intensive care unit if necessary.

How the MEWS Works


When a nurse at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd takes a patients
vital signs and records them on the patients chart
(see Figure 1 below), if any one of the following six
vital signs falls in to a red zone, the nurse is
prompted to determine a MEWS score for the patient:
Respiratory rate
Heart rate
Systolic blood pressure
Conscious level
Temperature
Hourly urine output (for previous 2 hours)
