Minimize Alarm Fatigue
Engage Intelligent Workflow Engine
In too many hospitals, clinicians are bombarded with alarms, most of which don’t require clinical intervention. At the same time, they face delays in receiving critical information from the EHR and other systems. It all adds up to interruption fatigue and toil, and it puts patient safety at risk.
Vocera Engage works behind the scenes to make it easy for care teams to prioritize and respond to alarm notifications, communicate, and deliver safer patient care.

It was frustrating for our nurses to be in the patient room with alarms constantly sounding on their phones.

Reducing Nursing Alarm Interruptions and Fatigue
Sentara Princess Anne Hospital NICU
Nurses often received secondary patient-monitor alarm notifications on their phones while caring for and in proximity of a patient. Ancillary alarms contributed to interruption fatigue and alarm desensitization. Unnecessary noise was also disruptive and overstimulated the infants.
- Needed a solution that would send ancillary patient monitor alarm notifications only when nurses were away from the primary patient monitor.
- Used existing RTLS to establish a continuous nurse location signal in the NICU and share it with the Vocera alarm management system.
