“Early detection of patient deterioration in general care units should be a top priority for healthcare institutions. Continuous monitoring is a key factor in recognizing and promptly responding to early warning signs which should help decrease patient morbidity and mortality, as well as length of hospital stay and costs.”
Dr. David Bates, Director of the Center for Patient Safety Research and Practice, Chief Innovation Officer, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
