TeleSitters are entering hospital rooms. How will they change patient care?
In many medical circumstances, clinicians and caregivers may choose to not leave a patient alone. For example, a patient may present a fall risk, experience confusion and agitation, or be at risk of self-harm. In these circumstances, they are in need of 24/7 monitoring. The TeleSitter is a critical patient supervision tool, particularly for hospitals that are understaffed or cannot afford the number of sitters that their patient load requires. They also present clear and remarkable improvements to hospital operations: they reduce costs, improve staffing allocation, and help the hospital focus costs on improving and scaling access to care.
