Improving Patient Safety with Remote Monitoring

To reduce the number of patient falls and improve overall patient safety, many healthcare facilities employ observation assistants, or patient sitters, who monitor at-risk patients from their bedsides. In addition to being time- and resource-intensive, this approach leads to staffing challenges when certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and other staff are repeatedly pulled off the floor, leaving nurses burdened with additional responsibilities.
