SAN DIEGO, Oct. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sotera® Wireless today highlighted a presentation to be featured at the upcoming AAMI Foundation Boston Regional Event on Wednesday, October 14, 2015. Clinicians from Wake Forest Baptist Health in North Carolina will describe steps the institution has taken to improve patient safety and positively impact alarm management.
Presenters for the session are Christina Taylor, RN, MSN, CCRN, SCRN, a nurse manager for Wake Forest Baptist Health Neurocritical Care Unit and Neurosurgery Unit and Kristina Foard RN, MSNEd, SCRN, a nurse practice specialist for the trauma and burn service lines. In their discussion the nurses will address current issues relevant to alarm and alert management and the implications for surveillance monitoring, an emerging strategy that hospitals are using to improve patient safety.
"Wake Forest is a leader in the use of monitoring technology for patients outside of the intensive care unit, who are often perceived to be free of any specific risk," said Rosemary Kennedy, a recognized innovator in nursing informatics and Sotera's chief nursing officer. "This type of surveillance improves patient safety, but concerns exist regarding alarm management. Wake Forest has developed strategies for success in patient surveillance, and their insight will be valuable to others trying to do the same."
AAMI Foundation is dedicated to serving public welfare, improving patient safety, and assisting the advancement of medical technology management. Technology is always changing; but while there may be new ways to access processes this does not guarantee improvement to the current systems. The National Coalition for Alarm Management Safety was created with the purpose of focusing a collaborative effort amongst the national's top hospitals to advance alarm management.
