Product Overview

Our world is full of beeps, bleeps, and buzzes – there are alarm tones that remind us a message is waiting. In the healthcare environment, alarms to notify personnel of patient and equipment situations have increased significantly over the last decade. From IV pumps and patient monitors to bed sensors and pneumatic pressure devices, nurses are alerted by an audible tone when a potentially unsafe condition has occurred.  This self-paced online learning program provides an overview of alarm fatigue, from a historical perspective, as well as identifying the current trends and addressing future considerations.  By the end of this program, the participants should be able to   • Summarize current statistics related to adverse patient events in hospitals   • State past or current efforts/plans of health care industry organizations such as the FDA, JCAHO and AAMI that focus on alarm safety   • Define the concept of Alarm Fatigue   • Discuss contributing factors of Alarm Fatigue   • Describe considerations for action related to Alarm Management and Patient Safety   • Identify the actions hospitals have implemented to reduce adverse events related to alarm fatigue
