HTT 59- Clinical Alarm Management

We have been on a bit of a summer hiatus here at Healthcare Tech Talk, but we are back in the editing room and ready to begin publishing new episodes. Today though we present to you an important episode of the AAMI Podcast. If you enjoy it please subscribe to the show. Hospitals are under pressure to draft and implement comprehensive policies that show they have a handle on the crucial patient safety issue of alarm fatigue. There’s been an explosion in the number of medical devices with alarms and alerts, resulting in a noisy healthcare setting and desensitizing clinicians to the meaning or importance of alarms. With more alarms going off, the intended goal of alerting clinicians to true emergencies has been diminished, and patient safety has been imperiled. Ronald Wyatt, MD, the patient safety officer and medical director at The Joint Commission and Maria Cvach, DNP, CCRN, director of policy management and integration for the Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore, MD, talk about what hospitals should be doing—and how they can make a positive difference with effective clinical alarm management.
