Tackling Alarm Fatigue – Meaningful Alerts that Make a Difference

ALERTS YOU CAN TRUST

As hospitals are experiencing adverse patient events due to alarm fatigue, the Joint Commission continues to include alarm management as a National Patient Safety Goal.

The Rothman Index goes beyond vitals-based monitoring to provide constant, advanced surveillance and trending for any patient, any disease, and any unit. With the patented use of nursing assessments, the Rothman Index outpaces other clinical surveillance scores with more timely and accurate warnings.

In a Journal of Hospital Medicine article, researchers compared the accuracy of MEWS against the Rothman Index. The study found…

the Rothman Index had 53% fewer false alarms and captures 54% more of those patients who will die within 24 hours (Finlay et al. 2014).

  • Why alert sensitivity and specificity make all the difference
  • How Rothman Index alerts can be easily integrated into your clinical workflow
