July 30, 2014 | Evaluations & Guidance
Alarm hazards have been recognized as a key patient safety issue, and healthcare facilities are expected to develop programs to assess and improve how clinical alarms are managed. ECRI Institute has published the following resources to help deal with these formidable tasks. This material provides a starting point from which hospitals can begin to create their own alarm management programs. (Note that additional alarm safety resources can be accessed from our Alarm Management: The Essentials page. )
