Abstract:

With a lack of adherence to documentation, assessment, and utilization of the Pediatric Early Warning System (PEWS) by pediatric staff nurses, there was a significant gap between clinical deterioration recognition and escalation of care. The objective of this project was to enforce the consistent use of practice regarding the application of the PEWS. This project aimed to enhance understanding of the PEWS and improve the response time of registered nurses to pediatric clinical deterioration.
