Effect of a Pediatric Early Warning System on All-Cause Mortality in Hospitalized Pediatric Patients

Effect of a Pediatric Early Warning System on All-Cause Mortality in Hospitalized Pediatric Patients Key PointsQuestionDoes the implementation of the Bedside Paediatric Early Warning System (BedsidePEWS) reduce hospital mortality compared with no severity of illness score? FindingsIn this cluster randomized trial that included 21 hospitals, 144 539 patient discharges, and 559 443 patient-days, implementation of the BedsidePEWS compared with usual care did not significantly decrease all-cause mortality among hospitalized pediatric patients (1.93 per 1000 discharges vs 1.56 per 1000 discharges, respectively). MeaningThis study does not support the use of the BedsidePEWS to reduce hospital mortality. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Key PointsQuestionDoes the implementation of the Bedside Paediatric Early Warning System (BedsidePEWS) reduce hospital mortality compared with no severity of illness score? FindingsIn this cluster randomized trial that included 21 hospitals, 144 539 patient discharges, and 559 443 patient-days, implementation of the BedsidePEWS compared with usual care did not significantly decrease all-cause mortality among hospitalized pediatric patients (1.93 per 1000 discharges vs 1.56 per 1000 discharges, respectively).
