“Problems in recognising and responding to patients who are deteriorating continues to be a major source of severe harm and preventable death in hospitals. Previous research has shown that up to a quarter of preventable deaths are related to failures in clinical monitoring.” Investigation into recognising and responding to critically unwell patients Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch 23 May 2019

“Our investigation very much highlighted that it is not easy to improve situation awareness and decision making. The emphasis has to be on designing an effective system to make sure the right information is getting to the right place at the right time, creating a holistic picture of the patient…Recognising and treating deterioration in patients is something clinicians have to deal with every day in busy hospitals and ultimately our safety recommendations are designed to reduce the devastating impact this has on staff, patients and their families.” Dr Stephen Drage, Director of Investigations Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch 23 May 2019
