SummaryIntroductionEarly Warning Scoring tools (EWS) play a major role in the detection of the deteriorating ward patient. EWS tools have been in place in Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust for over five years but compliance has been low. A service improvement project commenced across all admission wards in 2013, initiated through a financially driven CQUIN. Prior to the project, only one out of five clinical care targets set were achieved.StrategyAn established framework for service improvement was used to guide delivery. The approach has consisted of multi-faceted, inter-professional high impact interventions including ward delivered education, human factors training and clinician feedback, combined with regular performance audits.ResultsSince introduction of the service improvement team, consistent signs of improvement have been visible across the admission areas in four out of five of the clinical care targets.ConclusionThe first 12 months of the project has seen tangible benefits in patient care and staff experience. Personal feedback both to medical and nursing staff has been effective where a top-down approach may not have been.
