Alarms, Occupancy

Definition : Alarm systems designed to activate audible and/or visual signals when a patient attempts to move from a designated area such as a chair, wheelchair, bed, or room. These alarms are typically comprised of sensors deployed to determine the patient's location and connected to an electronic control unit. Specific occupancy alarms for beds and wheelchairs are available with pressure pads designed to fit on or beneath mattresses or wheelchair seats. Other occupancy alarms such as floor mats, clothing clips, and motion detectors are also available and can be used with beds, wheelchairs, or rooms. Occupancy alarms have several possible configurations and sometimes several sensors can be used together to create an occupancy alarm system. Some occupancy alarms can interface with nurse call systems providing remote alarms. Occupancy alarms are used to alert caregivers that a patient has or is attempting to move. Occupancy alarms can help reduce the likelihood of falls and can promote speedy assistance to patients who have already fallen by alerting caregivers that a patient who should not get up unassisted is doing so.

Alert Care's AMBULARM has been used by caregivers as a simple, cost effective way to reduce patient falls and restraint usage. In that period more than 2,000 health care facilities have used nearly 100,000 AMBULARMS. AMBULARM benefits include the reduction of restraints and lowering falls by 30% or more on selected nursing stations. The AMBULARM was designed to support hospitals and nursing homes interested in Patient Fall Prevention and Reducing the Use of Restraints. Our experience indicates a hospital averages one fall incident per bed per year. While about one third of institutional falls occur with patients who are restrained, two thirds of falls reported in hospitals and nursing homes are reported from patients who are not in restraints.
