    Management

    Once the MEWS identifies a patient at risk of deterioration, the medical team will need to identify the cause and address it accordingly.

    Critical Actions

    • 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.
