Description

Can you imagine a hospital ward with no code blue alarms? This speaker has been leading the team at Hamilton Health Sciences to achieve an audacious goal: to improve hospital safety by eradicating in-hospital cardiac and respiratory arrests. Through clinical research in support of Early Warning Scores, it was found that in-hospital arrests are often preceded by a period of abnormal vital signs. “We believe that most cardiac arrests in an acute care setting should be considered a failure to rescue.” Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) has been on a journey since 2010 to implement their modified early warning score. In 2016, HHS undertook work to make their Early Warning Score real-time with the use of mobile devices and an automation platform. This session will discuss Hamilton Health's journey and their outstanding results!
