Nurses, caregivers, therapists, and doctors in acute care facilities all know the financial, physical, and emotional cost of a patient's injurious fall. How can we make caring for these high fall risk patients a little more achievable?
Having fall monitors at the point of care in every room, at every chair and bed, can take some pressure off of caregivers. Mounting monitors at the POC for the bedside chair or the bed has even been proven to lower falls.
We call this approach QUICK CARE. Caregivers appreciate the ease of set-up, not having to search for monitors, and that they are given the tools they desperately need to keep their patients safe. Monitors tie into the call bell system for a faster response time. How does this work?
Colcom, Stanley Healthcare’s exclusive distributor for their Fall Prevention Equipment, will work side by side with your falls committee to select the best monitor for your needs. We establish best practice, select exact locations on the walls in each room, provide all in servicing and teaching to all shifts.
