This website is a library for all resources related to the new Capital & Coast Early Warning Score (EWS) & Vital Signs Charts introduced in September 2015
. These are presented in a variety of formats, most of which are not editable. These systems are in use across both hospitals within Capital & Coast District Health Board
in Wellington, New Zealand. Both adult & paediatric (PEWS) charts are presented below. Please note that there are 5 paediatric charts which are age specific.
- The Adult EWS was developed by Alex Psirides & Anne Pedersen during 2015 to update the Wellington EWS & bring it in line with current evidence.
- The Paediatric EWS was developed by Sinéad McCarthy, Charlotte Stanczuk, Alex Psirides & Anne Pedersen & is based on charts originally designed by Canterbury DHB.
- The vital signs charts were designed by Alex Psirides, Anne Pedersen & Elena d’Eon.
If you have any queries, please contact us using the envelope icon on the right of this page. If you wish to adapt our system for use in your hospital, editable versions are available for no charge. Most documents were developed using either Adobe InDesign
