Oxygen Saturation Monitoring Policy and Procedure #6

COVID-19 Hub Health and Safety COVID-19 Region: | Reference: SCC114

This is a new policy on measuring oxygen saturation levels to support discharge from hospitals and reduce admissions to hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. This measurement is part of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS) and is used in RESTORE2 to spot early signs of deterioration in care home residents, however, it could be used for service users in their own home. The policy contains links to a training video on oxygen saturation measurements and the NEWS observation form.
