PURPOSE: Many studies have shown that critical deteriorations in hospitalized patients are often preceded by signs of instability. Rapid response teams (RRT) along with scoring systems have been employed to identify patients at risk of deterioration. One such early warning score is the National Early Warning Score (NEWS), which uses acute changes in vital signs and other physiological functions to assess risk of patient deterioration. However, it is not known whether chronic conditions, such as impaired functional status, may influence that risk of deterioration. The Braden Scale measures patients’ risks for skin alteration, but several of its items also estimate functional ability. We hypothesized that adding functional disability, as measured by low Braden Scale score, would improve the diagnostic characteristics of the NEWS in early recognition and response to patient deterioration.
