September 18, 2017

Hospitals are continuing to implement strategies to improve alarm management.  When you register for the online seminar, you’ll hear the successes—and things that don’t work as well—from one hospital’s efforts.  Peggy Bartholomew will share her experiences at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

You'll learn to:

  • Identify operational barriers to impacting alarm reduction
  • Identify clinician barriers to impacting alarm reduction
  • Learn recommendations to reduce non-actionable alarms

About the National Coalition

The work of the AAMI Foundation National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety is intended to be a helpful resource for healthcare delivery organizations, so that every organization does not have to reinvent the wheel or start their alarm management work from scratch. It does not constitute legal, regulatory, operational, or procedural advice, nor does it constitute a standard of care. It is essential that each healthcare delivery organization assess the material in the context of its own organizational needs, culture, technology, and priorities. - See more at: http://www.aami.org/PatientSafety/content.aspx?ItemNumber=1494&navItemNumber=3088#sthash.MM66mQ9Y.dpuf
