Continuous clinical surveillance: A solution for patient safety
Hospitals are fighting an ongoing battle against unrecognized patient deterioration, alarm fatigue, opioid-induced respiratory depression, sepsis, unplanned extubation and other preventable conditions. In this whitepaper, we will review the scope of these patient safety matters, inadequacies of current practices, the emergence of clinical surveillance and a strategy to implement continuous clinical surveillance that helps enhance patient safety and outcomes.
Key points that readers will learn include:
- The clinical and financial impact of alarm fatigue and these adverse patient conditions
- How continuous clinical surveillance is different from patient monitoring and alarm management and focuses on mitigating non-clinically actionable alerts and notifications
- Published results that hospitals have achieved with continuous clinical surveillance
