Can Alarm Fatigue be Conquered?

Hospitals find ways to effectively address the problem of Alarm proliferation.

Conquering the noise.

As of January 2016, TJC’s National Patient Safety Goals mandated that hospitals take definitive steps to implement policies and procedures to safely reduce and prioritize the number of primary and secondary alarms. The ECRI Institute ranked alarm proliferation as the second top technology hazard in 2016,

In the May issue of Healthcare Risk Management entitled “Can alarm fatigue be conquered? Yes, say hospitals cutting the noise” this article addresses the problem and solutions.  To see how  Donna M. Reinholdt, HSC Director of Corporate Risk Management and Compliance, and Connie Dills, Respiratory Practice Manager at HSC are addressing issue click the link below to read the article.

Visit Bernoulli at Booth 436 during AAMI 2016 Conference & Expo

Bernoulli will be exhibiting at Booth #436 during the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) 2016 Conference & Expo, June 3-6, 2016, in Tampa, FL.

The Bernoulli team will be demonstrating patient surveillance capabilities and its unique clinical alarm solution, which leverages baseline alarm evaluations and smart alarm capabilities to reduce, rather than merely manage, clinical alarms. Bernoulli will also feature its next-level medical device integration capabilities, which supports advanced direct-to-device connectivity for EHR integration and real-time predictive analytics. Bernoulli is a sponsoring partner of the AAMI Foundation’s Coalition for Alarm Management Safety and the Coalition to Promote Continuous Monitoring for Patients on Opioids.
