A hospital in the Netherlands asked Philips Clinical Services to help them lower the number of irrelevant alarms in its new ICU facility—a startling 344 alarms1,2 per bed per day.
A team from Philips and ICU staff worked together to separate the clinically relevant alarms from non-clinically relevant alarms. The result? A transformed environment with improved patient care and staff satisfaction.
The key to success was the value of an external consultant, the power of objective monitoring data and change management support.
