A Smarter Way To Prevent Falls

Rapid Response To Patient Behavior

1

Bed Rail Goes Down

Remote monitoring of bed status and iBed® Awareness alarms, providing contextual information by alarm type

2

Tone, Light & Alarm Notification

CommonPath Enterprise will receive specific bed alarm on the nurse or command center terminal and light the dome light outside the room

3

Mobile Notification

w/Call Back Into Room

Simultaneously, a contextual alarm will be sent directly to the caregiver(s) assigned to that room. RNs can intercede by calling directly into room from any CC&C platform or application

If you have Stryker’s iBed® Wireless enabled beds deployed in your units, Critical Alert can dramatically enhance your fall prevention outcomes!


Configure each Stryker iBed® Wireless-enabled bed to automatically alert unit clerk, centralized operator or nursing staff if the safe bed configuration is compromised. Staff can immediately call into the room, assess the situation, instruct the patient to stay in bed and reassure him/her that someone will attend to their needs shortly.

Proactive Intervention of Bed Events

Our CommonPath Enterprise Platform remotely monitors factors such as Fowler angle for critical care patients, or safe siderail configuration for fall risk patients in real-time. Should a parameter change, the system can generate an alert, that can be sent directly to a caregiver’s mobile device or populate a centrally-located Bed Board.

Smart Phone Notifications – Send contextual bed-exit alarms directly to the mobile devices of your caregivers. We support an integration library of industry-standard mobile, CC&C platforms such as Vocera, Zebra, Cisco, Spectralink, etc.

A Proactive Approach For Preventing Falls

  • Predetermining Fall Risk – Import of patient precautions data from ADT & EHR
  • Visual Indication of Risk Status – Visual display of fall risk within the nurse console, on dome lights outside the room and in mobile notifications
  • Prioritization – When responding to mobile notifications, the clinical team can address fall risk patients with an identified fall risk
  • Continuous Assessment – Critical Alert’s mobile rounding tool contextualizes risk, allowing RNs to address risky patient behaviors as they round
