About This Course
There has been an emphasis placed on hospitals’ governing bodies overseeing delivery of health care to improve processes of detection and response to patients who show signs of clinical deterioration (Standard 8). Most notably these were in relation to;
- Changes in Neurological Status (unresponsive)
- Respiratory deterioration (SpO2 <90% and/or changes in RR / pattern)
- Cardiovascular compromise (SBP <90 systolic, HR >130 or <40)
- Worried (often identified as Sepsis)
A key challenge for any hospital is to ensure that patients at risk of critical illness or a serious adverse event receives appropriate and timely care. To ensure this occurs, it is incumbent on staff working in these areas to continually maintain and update their knowledge and skills.
This course has been designed to enhance the professional development of nurses working in acute clinical settings who may be faced with pts who show signs of clinical deterioration.
It is perfectly suited for ANY nurse needing to refresh their knowledge & skills.
