The EarlySense System was designed to optimize “time to the patient” from the earliest indication of patient risk signs. The System provides managers with unique tools to evaluate, trend and improve team response times to alerts.
Multiple alerts can jeopardize the effectiveness of continuous monitoring. Excessive alerts may result in alarm fatigue, potentially causing nurses to ignore true clinically actionable alarms when they occur.
Nursing managers face an ever increasing responsibility as regulatory scrutiny of quality of care and patient safety grows and implications become more severe. Preventable adverse events may occur due to protocols not being fully implemented, or proper technical tools not being available. The EarlySense System offers a tool set to enhance nursing management efficiency to ensure consistent quality of care. The system allows nursing managers to receive reports, automatically or on demand, of pressure ulcer prevention protocol compliance, fall prevention activity and vital sign vigilance.
Managers can elect to receive performance reports via e-mail on a daily basis or print an up-to-date report at any time. Valuable management information is displayed continuously for the managers to glance at.
