Brief description Research indicates that one in ten patients admitted to hospital suffered an adverse event. Studies have shown that the adverse clinical outcomes (e.g. cardiac arrest or death) often exhibit early warning signs such as slow deterioration of vital signs hours before such an event. Clinical Excellence Commission of NSW implemented a world-first standardised patient safety system (i.e., Between the Flag) to address the issues. We aim to provide an evaluation of the effectiveness of this system.
