you stop falls before they start...
Ambularm is a new concept in fall prevention.
When selected high-risk patients are
in bed or a chair they simply wear a lightweight electronic
alarm that is position-sensitve.
Whenever the patient moves towards
a standing, kneeling, or crawling position, the alarm sounds
automatically, summoning immediate assistance.
For this reason, ALERT CARE,
provides in-service training materials, including an 8
minute video presentation.
The Ambularm concept is a relatively
inexpensive way to focus your staff's attention on the seriousness
of patient falls. Ambularm brings awareness to: screening
high risk fall persons, locating patients near the nursing
station, siderail usage and other steps you are taking to
deal with the problem.
It is, of course, possible to realize
tangible savings through reduced patient injuries. In addition
Ambularm also pays off in good will. It's one more way of
showing patients and their families that you really care about
And when you're dealing with people,
that can be the biggest reward of all.
