Between 700,000 and 1,000,000 patients fall in hospitals each year* and 30-50% of these falls result in injury.** The CareView Clinical Safety System improves patient safety by preventing falls and reducing 1:1 sitter costs. The turnkey system requires no capital expenditures or up-front costs.
The CareView Clinical Safety System provides caregivers the ability to observe high fall-risk patients from one central location. Motion detection alerts provide staff with additional lead time to get to a patient’s aid, thereby dramatically reducing hospital fall rates. With CareView, your patient’s room becomes a safer place.

Using patented motion detection software, the CareView System gives you advance notice and time to respond. Using only the camera in the room, the Virtual Bed Rails® motion detection software creates invisible, motion-sensitive borders in and around the beds of at-risk patients. If the borders are crossed, the nurse is alerted immediately.
Patient care and fall prevention are extended to the nurse’s handheld allowing them to quickly receive and triage fall alarms. Instead of physically entering the patient’s room to determine the fall risk, the nurse can immediately qualify the alarm and respond accordingly.
There are no up-front costs to use the CareView System. There is a simple monthly fee per bed and all training, installation and support is included.
Implementation and installation is easy. The CareView System operates over your hospital’s existing coaxial network and VPN, and we work with your plant operations team to fit the equipment into rooms.
Patient privacy is always a concern when using cameras in a clinical setting. The CareView System is HIPAA-compliant and secure. It does not record any video images and includes consent processes and privacy options.
CareView is a very flexible system and can be setup in a number of ways in order to satisfy hospital or system security and operational networking requirements. Generally, CareView is a closed system with interfaces to the hospital infrastructure only for:
