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.
