Post a description of the focus of your scenario. Describe the data that could be used and how
the data might be collected and accessed. What knowledge might be derived from that data?
How would a nurse leader use clinical reasoning and judgment in the formation of knowledge
from this experience?

The healthcare industry is continually growing, with innovations developed each day.

Nursing has transitioned from paper charting to electronic systems, with routine updates to

improve patient outcomes. At Boston Medical Center, the electronic health record (EHR) is used

for documentation of data and a collection of information that providers can reference. There is

an Early Warning Sign (EWS) alert system for nurses and providers to identify patients at high

risk of sepsis or immediate intervention in the EHR. The EWS will provide a score based on

temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and white blood cell count.

The Scenario

Marcy is a night-shift nurse, and she is assigned the charge nurse’s role in the current

shift. She briefly looks at the unit management board to see which rooms are occupied and which

ones are clean. Marcy can also estimate the overall acuity of the unit based on the EWS scores of

each patient. She notices four patients marked yellow (with a score between 3 to 5) on the EWS

system. Upon further inspection, these patients are stable and showing improvement in vital

signs and lab work despite still being in the abnormal range. The primary nurses continue careful

monitoring. Marcy continues to look at the unit board and sees that two other patients are marked

red (score of 6 or higher) on the EWS system. Opening their charts, Marcy gets a pop-up alert

that requires her to notify the provider or on-call ICU nurse for immediate attention. After

confirming with the primary nurses of these patients that providers were notified, Marcy pages

the on-call ICU nurse and notifies him of two patients that may potentially become unstable.

The EWS score was implemented by the informatics team of Boston Medical Center. The

score is determined by data that is populated in different areas of the patient chart. It allows

healthcare providers to have a quick summary of a patient’s acuity before looking further into the

information. However, t
