Improving Safety and Reducing Costs Today …
From 700,000 to 1 million patients suffer a fall in U.S. hospitals each year. At least 30% of falls result in injury and 1% in death. Payers no longer reimburse the added costs of treating fall injuries. Litigation following hospital falls is growing in frequency and settlement size. And falls have a serious impact on patient satisfaction and a hospital’s reputation.
The AvaSys® TeleSitter® Solution allows a single trained observer to monitor multiple patients simultaneously via video and intervene via two-way audio in time to prevent falls and other self-injury. AvaSys also helps prevent elopement and allows hospitals to observe patients in holding areas; protects staff from violent patients; and facilitates additional check-ins and virtual rounds.REQUEST A CUSTOM DEMO
