Alarms, Occupancy, Bed

Definition : Occupancy alarms designed to activate audible and/or visual signals when unattended patients attempt to get out of bed. These alarms typically consist of pressure pad sensors placed underneath or on top of the mattress. These alarms are deployed to determine the patient's location and are connected to an electronic control unit; some bed occupancy alarms can interface with nurse call systems providing remote alarms. Bed occupancy alarms are used to alert caregivers that a patient has or is attempting to move. Bed occupancy alarms can help reduce the likelihood of falls and can promote speedy assistance to patients who have already fallen by alerting caregivers that a patient who should not get out of bed unassisted is doing so.
