    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Danish Summary in Danish Patientsikkerhed på hospital – forebyggelse af uventede dødsfald via systematisk anvendelse af et Early Warning Score system På hospitaler i den vestlige del af verden sker det, på trods af store indsatser for at øge patientsikkerheden, at indlagte patienters tilstand forværres alvorligt, og at nogle af disse patienter i værste tilfælde dør, som konsekvens af utilstrækkelig overvågning og uoptimal håndtering af situationen fra hospitalspersonalets side. I de sidste tyve år har man haft kendskab til, at patienter, der dør uventet på hospital, frembyder afvigende vitale parametre (puls, vejrtrækningsfrekvens, blodtryk og temperatur) i op til 48 timer inden det uventede dødsfald.
