Rockall Score 

HEPATOLOGY

A value obtained from the Rockall risk scoring system, which stratifies patients at risk of adverse outcome following acute upper GI bleeding, based on simple addition of patient parameters and clinical findings.

A score of 3 or less carries a good prognosis; 8-plus is bad news.
