Alarm Management Tool: Alarm Management Team Roster
January 18, 2017 | Evaluations & Guidance
This is one of a series of tools developed by ECRI Institute to support alarm management teams in their efforts to improve clinical alarm safety, and thus meet the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management (NPSG.06.01.01). Refer to The Path to Alarm Safety for additional information about using this tool within the context of an alarm management program.
The complete collection of tools can be accessed from Alarm Management: The Essentials. (Versions of these tools are also available in ECRI Institute's Alarm Safety Handbookand Workbook, which consolidate many of our alarm management resources into a single publication. Members can download or purchase print editions of the books. )
One of the first steps in complying with NPSG.06.01.01—and, more broadly, in managing clinical alarms—is the creation of a multidisciplinary alarm management team. ECRI Institute developed this sample roster to guide hospitals in creating the team and in documenting its structure. Add or delete staff from the table as necessary to meet the needs of your hospital's alarm management effort.
