Combat Alarm Fatigue and Improve Patient Care with TigerConnect Alarm Management & Event Notification

While alarms play an important role in notifying healthcare professionals of critical patient needs, having too many notifications can cause alarm fatigue for already overworked nurses and may put some patients at risk. Being able to differentiate between emergency situations and simple notifications while also being able to route alarms to appropriate staff can help hospitals optimize their alarm management systems.

During a Becker’s Hospital Review webinar sponsored by TigerConnect, Laurie Devin, RN, medicine coordinator at Yale New Haven Hospital (Conn.) (part of Yale New Haven Health), and Ryan Bush, RN, director of clinical consulting at TigerConnect, described the alarm management challenges that Yale New Haven Health faced, how TigerConnect helped Yale New Haven Health meet those challenges and the results that were achieved.
