Why Is It Important?
It is vital registered healthcare professionals adopt a systematic approach to patient assessment within the clinical environment. Demonstrating best practice and the use of effective assessment tools, helps healthcare professionals to identify patients at risk of deterioration and put appropriate escalation/treatment plans in place.
The prime causes of negative patient outcomes were identified as, a delayed recognition of patient deterioration, lack of appreciation of the severity of deterioration, provision of inappropriate treatment and a delayed referral to critical care.
