How many caregivers have been caught unaware of the whereabouts of their patients until they have been declared missing? Caregivers are only human and they sometime fall asleep or get into deep conversations with others so they sometimes fail to monitor their patients. However, this should not be reason enough to get entangled with some lawsuit just because your patient got the better of you.
There is a way to monitor your patients more efficiently and that is through Drive Medical’s Pressure Sensitive Chair & Bed Alarm System. This home medical equipment can lessen the pressure of having to watch your patient at all times especially when you have to use the restroom or do something important.
This bed alarm system makes use of a pressure sensitive pad which alerts you whenever it detects movement from the patient. Thus, expect an alarm to either wake you up or alert you when your patient attempts to get up.
The pad is sensitive to pressure so any movement from the patient will trigger the safety alarm. Of course, the alarm comes with an on and off switch so just make sure you put the alarm on when you leave the patient by himself of if you could not watch him a hundred percent.
It makes use of a 9- volt battery but no worries since there is a warning when the battery level gets low. You can choose to buy a bed pad measuring 11″x30″ or a chair pad measuring 10″ x 15″. But why not buy both since they are really very helpful not only for big hospitals or small clinics but also for home use.
