Clinical alarms are a high-frequency, high-risk patient safety hazard for all hospitals. This is the first of a series of seven webinars on alarms. By the end of the series, healthcare delivery organization alarm management teams will be prepared to comply with The Joint Commission’s (TJC) new National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) on Alarm Management.
This first webinar will set the stage for the series and outline the complexity of issues related to alarm systems and the events that have led to the spotlight on alarm systems and alarm fatigue. It will cover the overall scope of TJC's NPSG, the timeline for meeting the requirements, and how the series will help the participant start to meet the NPSG.
