Alarm Safety and Patient Safety

Clinical alarm management was identified in 2014 by the Joint Commission as a National Patient Safety Goal.  Continued inclusion of this goal in the 2018 Joint Commission list of National Patient Safety Goals, demonstrates the continued opportunity for improvements of this critical patient safety factor in all hospitals.  Ohio hospitals have recognized clinical alarms as priority safety focus.  Click here for more information.
