Read our white paper that covers:

  • Patient-engaged video surveillance is effective in reducing falls, room elopement, and line, tube, or drain dislodgment
  • Formal, trained 24-hour monitoring is more effective in reducing falls than sitters, bed alarms, and purposeful rounding
  • Constant observation and individualized patient interaction decreases the burden of staff response to false alarms and alarm fatigue. 
  • Across all adult age groups, patients respond positively to patient-engaged video surveillance
  • Data and fact-based outcomes of patient-engaged video surveillance on falls and other adverse events are explored


The continued burden of hospital-acquired adverse events on patient loss of function and life requires that all health care organizations stop surveillance practices that create a false sense of safety. This article summarizes current knowledge about patient surveillance integrated into clinical practice and patient safety outcomes in the hospital setting. Evidence of the efficiency and effectiveness of traditional surveillance system measures such as call bells, bed alarms, and intentional rounding lacks methodological rigor. The integration of such technology for all patients, irrespective of cognitive status, increases unnecessary burden to the nursing workforce and fails to individualize patient safety prevention. Health care leaders, in efforts to fast track patient safety improvement, are investing in patient-engaged video surveillance (PEVS) technology that ensures ...
