Özet

Background/aim: Early warning scores (EWS), widely used around the world but not yet in Turkey, are composed of physiological parameters designed to determine potentially worsening patients to perform necessary interventions in time. The aim is to determine the national EWS (NEWS) of the patients to assess the relation between this score and length of hospital stay (LOHS), transfer to the ICU, 24-h and 28-day mortality rates, and the frequency of in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA).
