The new Modified Early Warning System, or MEWS, was launched at Providence Medford Medical Center in mid-July. The primary purpose of MEWS is to ensure swift intervention or transfer of critically ill patients, resulting in lower morbidity and mortality for our patients. Using a computer algorithm that runs behind the scenes, MEWS monitors vital signs and pages the unit charge nurse if a patient’s score reaches a specified threshold. Nurses then reassess the patient, notify the attending physician and follow a response-and-monitoring protocol. This automated alert comes directly from the electronic health record system currently in place at PMMC.
