Quality of Life - Alarm Fatigue

It’s time to make necessary changes in order to preserve residential care. Shift your thinking with the help of Carnelian Technologies.

Research has demonstrated that 72% to 99% of alarms are false. The high number of false alarms has led to alarm fatigue. Alarm fatigue is sensory overload when clinicians/nurses/frontline workers are exposed to an excessive number of alarms, which can result in desensitization resulting in compromised patient & resident safety.

Alarm Fatigue
Quality of Life

Alarm Fatigue

  • The very alarms that are meant to protect patients & residents have instead led to increased unit noise, alarm fatigue and a false sense of security.
  • Caregivers take inappropriate actions from nuisance alarms such as lowering the alarm volume, extending alarm limits outside a reasonable range, or even disabling alarms.
  • Quieter living and working conditions without alarms and bells make meaningful improvements in the quality of life for everyone.
  • Create a more calm environment by reducing false alarms and unnecessary noise. Silent alerts to medical grade mobile phones allow caregivers to respond when their help is needed instead of wasting time & energy on false alarms.
  • By reducing the noise at night the result is better sleep for patients & residents which in turn can reduce problems during the day. There is less agitation and violence and improved communication, mood and overall performance.
