'Errors' and omissions in paper-based early warning scores: the association with changes in vital signs--a database analysis.

Clifton DA, Clifton L, Sandu DM, Smith GB, Tarassenko L, Vollam SA, Watkinson PJ - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: To understand factors associated with errors using an established paper-based early warning score (EWS) system.We investigated the types of error, where they are most likely to occur, and whether 'errors' can predict subsequent changes in patient vital signs.Work is urgently needed to understand how best to capture this information.
