Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS) for Clinical Deterioration
Different institutions and regions may use different modifications of the MEWS. Verify that your institution uses the same points assignments listed here.
Please fill out required fields.
Once the MEWS identifies a patient at risk of deterioration, the medical team will need to identify the cause and address it accordingly.
- This score can be used by any healthcare worker with proper training in how to use it and interpret the results.
- It is meant to be used on a regular basis rather than once on admission.
