Nix the Noise: Managing Alarms, Alerts and Interruptions
Part 1 of this white paper series discusses how multiple, noise-generating events have combined to create an environment where nurses experience an alert approximately every 90 seconds. These interruptions range from critical medical device alerts, to actionable, but non-critical alerts, to informative notifications requiring no action. As a result, clinicians are tuning out the noise, which has the potential to contribute to adverse patient events
The second part of the 2-part white paper series, further explores alarms, alerts, and nursing interruptions that can cause alarm fatigue and adverse events. Download the white paper to learn more about actionable vs. non-actionable clinical events and discover how context plays a vital role in patient intervention.
