Work has now been carried out to enable NEWS 2 on the RIO Platform.
The National Early Warning Score ( NEWS2 )is a systematic method to measure simple physiological parameters in patients aged 16 years and above, which will detect signs of critical deterioration early and help in the assessment of the severity of acute illness. Vital signs are given a score to help staff recognise clinical deterioration and get expert medical help.
Key to successful patient outcome are:
- Early Detection
- Timely Response
- Competent help
