This webcast is part one of a two-part webcast series on alarm and alert fatigue from the Society of Critical Care Medicine, held in collaboration with the Surgery Patient and Safety Committee. During this session, Maria M. Cvach, DNP, RN, FAAN, Director of Policy Management and Integration at The Johns Hopkins Health System, and Bradford D. Winters, MD, PhD, FCCM, Associate Profressor, Anethesiology and Critical Care Medicine and Surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, will discuss how alarm fatigue has become a health technology hazard and will offer strategies for management. Missed alarms have resulted in patient injury and death; this hazard has been listed on the Emergency Care Research Institute’s Top 10 Health Technology Hazards list since its inception in 2007. The Joint Commission instituted a National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management in 2014 with a requirement that hospitals fully implement it by January 2016.
