Since 1984, Alert Care's AMBULARM has been used by caregivers as a simple, cost effective way to reduce patient falls and restraint usage. In that period more than 2,000 health care facilities have used nearly 100,000 AMBULARMS.
AMBULARM benefits include the reduction of restraints and lowering falls by 30% or more on selected nursing stations.
The AMBULARM was designed to support hospitals and nursing homes interested in Patient Fall Prevention and Reducing the Use of Restraints.
Our experience indicates a hospital averages one fall incident per bed per year. While about one third of institutional falls occur with patients who are restrained, two thirds of falls reported in hospitals and nursing homes are reported from patients who are not in restraints.
