Create a Holistic Alarm Management Strategy

Apr 1, 2015 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT
Virtual Event

Alarm fatigue continues to be a challenge. Caregivers face a rapidly increasing number of alarm-based devices, more connected patients, and lack of standardization. Non-actionable alarms can contribute to alarm fatigue, strain hospital resources, and may adversely impact patient and staff satisfaction and patient care.

Learn strategies to address your alarm management goals while meeting the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goal. Hear about best practices related to comprehensive assessments that leverage alarm data to develop and implement a strategy for your institution.

At the completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss how to capture, analyze, and utilize data to identify performance improvement opportunities related to  non-actionable alarms
  • Differentiate actionable versus non-actionable alarm signals as part of an evidence-based approach to tackle alarm fatigue
  • Describe the components of a successful alarm management strategy and how they interact to address clinical care and operational effectiveness
