The Impact of Alarm Fatigue on patients and clinicians
It is well documented in the literature that the overwhelming majority of clinical alarms, upwards to 85-90% tolerated by nurses, respiratory therapists and other caregivers are either false alarms or non-actionable – requiring no clinical intervention – leading to alarm fatigue and desensitization that can result from caregivers responding to hundreds or even thousands of alarms every day. Both ECRI Institute and The Joint Commission (TJC) have noted this is a clear and documented threat to patient safety.
Join Bernoulli, a leader in real-time connected healthcare, on Thursday, May 12, 2016, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time) for an informative webinar on the impact of alarm fatigue on your clinicians and patients; the causes of nuisance alarms; and evidence-based best practices for clinical alarm management and reduction.
