About the Webinar
Hospitals face increased pressure to improve quality, increase patient satisfaction, and protect patients from harm.
Reducing your patient fall rate is critical. Until now, existing fall reduction strategies have been limited to risk assessment tools, reaction-based alarms, human sitters, virtual sitters, and video monitoring.
However, the reactive approach to patient falls is insufficient and proactive measures are warranted. Progressive technology dramatically reduces fall rates by using predictive monitoring techniques rather than human surveillance to alert staff.
Register for this webinar to:
- Understand the financial and clinical implications of patient falls within your hospital
- Learn how two healthcare systems reduced falls while lowering 1:1 sitter costs using predictive patient monitoring
- Understand why predictive patient monitoring is an important component in a culture of patient safety
