  • 1. …Grounded on principles …Breaking new Ground …Insight from the Ground up GROUNDVISION A Vision for Patient safety
  • 2. First DO NO HARM Second THROUGH INACTION ALLOW A PATIENT TO COME TO A HARM* *Failure to rescue a deteriorating patient.
  • 3. ‟Developing and adopting a standardised early warning system will be one of the most significant developments in health care in the next decade” Professor Derek Bell, chair of the NEWS educational subgroup
  • 4. ‟There is nothing nurses and doctors should prioritise more than patient safety, and this system, if implemented across the board, will be a great leap forward for patient care. ” RCN director of nursing and service delivery, Janet Davies
  • 5. ‟ Many changes in health care are incremental but this new National Early Warning Score has the potential to transform patient safety in our hospitals and improve patient outcomes, it is hugely important” Professor Bryan Williams, chair of the working party
  • 6. ‟One consistent theme throughout almost all of the organisations reviewed was the management of complex deteriorating patients and the monitoring of Early Warning Scores. The basic failure of observation at ward level gives rise to multiple problems following on from this, most notably for some of the organisations an increase in renal failure and nosocomial pneumonia.” Keogh Report 2013
  • 7. ‟Nurse staffing levels and skill mix will appropriately reflect the caseload and the severity of illness of the patients they are caring for and be transparently reported by trust boards.” Keogh Report 2013
  • 8. ‟All trusts should rapidly embed the use of an early warning system and have clinically appropriate escalation procedures for deteriorating, high-risk patients - in particular at weekends and out of hours. Commissioners and regulators should seek assurance that such systems are in place.” Keogh Report 2013
  • 9. ‟6,000 deaths could be prevented by using the National Early Warning Score”
  • 10. One study carried out by a trust found a 43% error rate in Early Warning Scores when using a paper based method for data collection. Another Study by Mohammed, Hayton, Clements, Smith and Prytherch demonstrated 40% error rate
  • 11. A safe ward requires patients to have the right observations taken at the right time and with the appropriate staffing and skill mix based on patient acuity and dependency.
  • 12. Our solution recognises the need for a holistic approach to observations that takes into account patient acuity and staffing. Electronic recording of observations ensures the right observations at the right time and our integrated acuity based model ensures there is the right level of staffing and skill mix to perform these observations.
  • 13.  Lower Hospital Standardised Mortality  Reduced Length of Stay  Increased level of compliance and transparency  Improved Accuracy  Reduced Nurse Sensitive patient safety incidents  Reduced cost.
  • 14.  Supports current NHS infrastructure.  Access from any web enabled device.  Local deployment or Hosted.  Integrated or Standalone.  SNCT or local variant.  NEWS or local variant.
