Minimizing Risks to Patients

According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of death-by-injury for Americans 65 years and older.1 Cultivating a culture of patient safety and implementing a comprehensive patient safety plan that includes a predictive fall monitoring solution can make a substantial difference in improving patient safety and quality of care.

The patented CareView Patient Safety System with predictive technology is proven to reduce falls by up to 80%, becoming an important part of any patient safety strategy.

Mitigating Risks to Staff 

Some of the forgotten victims of patient falls are the nurses and staff on the front lines. Falls affect caregivers both physically and psychologically. Not only can staff be injured while helping patients who have fallen, they can also suffer from feelings of guilt and frustration.

The CareView Patient Safety System not only empowers caregivers to watch and communicate with patients from a central location, the predictive monitoring technology works to alert staff that a patient is at risk before their feet touch the floor. Caregivers can react quickly to keep patients out of harm’s way.
