Configure each bed to automatically alert unit clerk, centralized operator or nursing staff if bed rails are dropped or patient position changes. Staff can immediately call into to the room, assess the situation, instruct the patient to stay in bed and re-assure him/her that someone will attend to their needs shortly.
Direct integration of the Critical Alert Nurse Call and Stryker smart beds enables staff to set specific parameters with Stryker’s iBed Awareness functionality. Configured at the bedside, factors such as Fowler angle for critical care patients, or bed-rails-up for fall-risk patients can be remotely monitored in real-time in Critical Alert Nurse Call Terminals.
In the event of a deviation from the awareness setting such as a bed-rail drop or shift in weight, Critical Alert Nurse Call will send a contextual alarm to the unit clerk, centralized triage center and/or directly to the edge device of the designated caregiver. This real-time notification of bed-alarms enables staff to proactively and immediately intervene in a potential bed exit.
This interface will display the bed serial number, the Unit where the bed is located, the current and previous locations, any alerts, the status of the Awareness mode, as well as the status of the locator battery for the beds. Additionally, the user will be able to see which monitored elements of the bed are in an Alert state as well as the configuration state for the bed.
