On Thursday, June 20 at 10am, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) will present a free webinar: "Managing Alarm Fatigue: New Approaches and Best Practices."
The patient safety organization, ECRI Institute, has identified alarm hazards as its Top Health Technology Hazard for 2013 and The Joint Commission issued an April 2013 Sentinel Event Alert on alarm fatigue. AACN’s free, live webinar will discuss the scope of this growing problem, management of environmental alarms for improved patient safety and strategies for creating a more effective (and quieter) workplace.
