Description of Presentations:
Silence Alarm Fatigue and Improve Patient Care with Spok Alarm Surveillance
Tuesday, October 9 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Audible alarms from infusion pumps, cardiac monitors, ventilators, and other machines constantly compete for nurses’ attention during a shift. More often than not, the message isn’t relevant or actionable. The result can be deadly if a patient’s caregiver becomes desensitized and assumes an alarm is false of misdirected. Combating alarm fatigue is daunting, but not insurmountable. Join two nursing experts from Spok to learn how the latest alarm surveillance technology can filter out nuisance and non-clinically actionable alarms to provide a better experience for nurses and patients.
Driving Clinical Excellence with Alarm Surveillance
Tuesday, October 9 from 3:30 pm – 4:20 pm
It’s no secret that alarm fatigue is a persistent problem. In a recent study of more than 1,200 clinicians, 87 percent say that nuisance alarms “occur frequently”, a jump of more than 10 percent in five years. In this session, you’ll discover how alarm surveillance could help diminish or eliminate alarm fatigue in your hospital. We’ll explain how clinical surveillance and medical device integration can analyze and consolidate alarms to provide meaningful clinical context for urgent alerts, ultimately, helping your clinicians spend more time at the bedside and achieve better patient outcomes.
