Ottawa Heart Failure Risk Score

The Ottawa Heart Failure Risk Scale (OHFRS) can probably help make disposition decisions by accurately predicting the 30-day rate of serious adverse events in patients with acute heart failure. 

Using a score of ≥ 2 had a similar sensitivity for SAEs when compared to physician judgement (71.2% vs 71.8%), but would have decreased admission rates (57.2 vs 48.3%).
