Falls are a widespread and devastating source of patient harm in healthcare settings. It has been estimated that 700,000 to 1 million hospitalized patients fall each year. That is an astounding number that can be significantly reduced by predetermining fall risk.
Critical Alert offers a comprehensive solution set for mitigating fall risk featuring integrations with ADT and bed vendors, inclusion of risk status in mobile notifications, risk indication in mobile rounding tools, and displays of risk indication on dome lights and consoles.
With the Stryker iBed Awareness integration, each bed can be configured to notify appropriate staff if bed rails are dropped or patient position changes allowing the caregiver to call into the room to assure the patient that someone is coming to attend to their needs. These real-time patient bed status and alerts allow clinicians to be proactive and immediately intervene to prevent patient falls.
