Colleagues – Looking to see if any of your inpatient facilities have discontinued the use of the bed alarm as a fall prevention strategy. Our facility has done away with the traditional "yellow" socks and is looking towards the remote televised sitter system that shows more success in their data than any bed alarm in terms of fall prevention. Would love to hear what others are doing.
Thank you in advance!
