How often do you hear bed and chair alarms going off in your SNF? Do you see your staff responding quickly, or has it become a delayed reaction? This problem is referred to as Alarm Fatigue, and Joint Commission has recently drawn attention to this issue. Alarm systems are crucial in the healthcare industry, and can be found on monitoring devices as well as patient safety tools. At times, staff members encounter an overload of alarm stimuli, and only a small number of those sounds may require clinical intervention. As staff members become habituated to the sound of alarms, they tune them out, which in turn can lead to injury or even death.
