ECRI Institute identifies alarm hazards as its Top Health Technology Hazard for 2012 and 2013!  The Joint Commision issued an April 2012 Sentinel Event Alert on alarm fatigue and has instituted a NPSG on managing cinical alarms for 2014!  As the number of medical devices continues to increase-each with its own alarm- so does the potential impact on patient safety.  This program provides information to healthcare workers on the complexity of managing alarm fatigue.  At the conclusion of this program the learner should be able to describe the causes and impact of alarm fatigue, outline the causes of nuisance and false-positive alarms, explain the impact of alarm fatigue on patient safety, summarize the impact of false-positive and nuisance alarms on patient safety, examine the evidence-based implementation strategies for improving patient safety, list clinician-led strategies for individualizing patient' alarm parameters.
