Medical Audits provide advice, support, training, consultancy and auditing services to Acute hospitals, Nursing homes, Hospices, Residential care settings and other Healthcare providers so they can continue to provide and maintain a safe environment for their clients and residents during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Early Warning Scores assist healthcare professionals in recognising the deterioration of a patient by categorising the severity of illness, thus prompting nursing staff to request a medical review at specific trigger points.
Medical Audits, Early Warning Score Audit (NEWS Audit) has been bespoke designed to assist with the early recognition of Sepsis and the implementation of Early Warning score cards.
Medical Audits TS+ Sepsis bundles simplify the complex processes involved in Identifying Sepsis and enable standardised Sepsis management. Each of our bundles are designed to audit practice in relation to the key elements of sepsis management with a range of care bundles and audits to support the implementation of best practice guidelines.
The Management of SEPSIS and the screening for SEPSIS has become a worldwide target for Infection Prevention and Patient Safety in Healthcare and in the community.
The equivalent of the Emirates stadium full of people die of SEPSIS each year in the UK alone.
Early detection, timeliness and competency of clinical response are recognised as the main determinants of clinical outcome in people with acute illness (RCP, 2012)
Numerous studies internationally now recommend the use of Track and Trigger systems or ‘early warning scores’ (EWS) to ensure prompt identification and adequate response to patients who either present with acute illness or who become acutely ill during their hospital stay.
Early Warning Scores facilitate early detection of deterioration by categorising a patient’s severity of illness and prompting nursing staff to request a medical review at specific trigger points utilising a structured communication tool while following a definitive escalation plan (HSE, 2014).
By agreeing a National Early Warning Score (NEWS), countries can standardise the assessment of acute illness severity, thus enabling a more timely response but also ensuring a common tool across acute hospitals nationally.
Because of the differing responses to sepsis in pregnancy and young children, separate EWS have been developed for these groups.
This audit aims to support implementation of NEWS and Paediatric EWS by providing a standardised method of collecting and analysing data while also providing an education tool to assist with embedding these best practice standards into daily use in clinical practice.
