Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland Selects EarlySense Technology to Prevent Patient Deterioration and Reduce Falls
WOBURN, Massachusetts, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EarlySense, the market leader in contact-free continuous monitoring solutions across the care continuum, announced today a comprehensive implementation by Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland (Rotterdam), a leading hospital in the Netherlands. The hospital installed EarlySense's continuous monitors in its 28-bed pulmonology ward following a successful evaluation of EarlySense's sensors by the hospital's nursing department.
Leveraging big data analytics, the EarlySense system will enable hospital staff to continuously and accurately monitor patient heart rate, respiratory rate and movement. This consistent stream of patient data will aid the nursing staff with early detection of patient deterioration, helping in preventing adverse events including patient falls.
"We are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest level of care, and equipping our nursing staff with advanced technology to help them succeed in their roles," said Lex Kahlman, Care Manager Pulmonology at Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland. "Preventing patient deterioration and falls is one of our key patient health objectives, as many of our patients are elderly and prone to falls. The EarlySense continuous monitoring system is a powerful tool that will help us mitigate this risk, and we are excited to add it to our ward as part of our total safety initiative."
Used worldwide in hospitals, rehab and skilled nursing facilities, the EarlySense continuous monitoring system leverages advanced algorithms to notify nurses of potentially adverse changes in patient vital signs, sending alerts to their pagers and to the central display station. The FDA-cleared and CE-approved solution has been clinically proven to help prevent adverse events, including code blues which are a result of cardiac or respiratory arrest, preventable ICU transfers, patient falls, pressure ulcers, and hospital readmissions.
"Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland is the latest hospital to join our growing list of global customers and we are proud to be included in their vision for patient safety," said Yfat Scilaom, VP of International Sales and Marketing at EarlySense. "Continuous monitoring solutions are coming closer to becoming a standard of care across the health continuum, and we are proud to see EarlySense technology continue to help patients and healthcare teams across the world."
