Clinical Observations Overnight

Recommended Posts

I would be interested to know, if overnight, patients who score 0-2 on NEWS which has not changed with no concerns since the last set of observations, what your trust policy is on observation frequency?

Does your trust require observations to be carried out 4 hourly minimum regardless of patients NEWS score and stability?

Or if there are no concerns and the patient is clinically stable with consecutive NEWS 0-2 that they do not have observations taken overnight?

Looking forward to hearing what other trust practices are.
