Risk Tools vs. Nurse Perception

We have a sepsis risk assessment tool. It's helpful if a patient is truly septic, but sometimes those measurable values are normal or baseline. I think it's helpful for when it's busy, and you might overlook an abnormal value. But I still use my nursing judgment in the end. Have we come to rely on technology so much that nurses are losing skill or “sense”?
