CONSISTENT & TIMELY PATIENT ROUNDING MAKES A DIFFERENCE

CONSTANT & PURPOSEFUL USE OF THE VISILERT DEVICE WILL MAKE IT VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO MISS A PATIENT ROUND, ALL WITH NO NOISE.

The Four P’s of patient care

Positioning – making sure the patient is comfortable and assessing the risk for skin ulcers.
Personal Needs – regularly assisting the patient in their need to use the bathroom.
Pain – assessing the patients pain level on a scale from zero (0) to ten (10)
Placement – making certain items a patient needs are in easy reach, i.e. water, tissues, glasses, etc.

Reduce patient falls

Over 90% of patient falls occur in and around the patient room. They most frequently occur when the patient is attempting to self ambulate. This desire is often driven by a need to use the bathroom or to get to a personal item needed by the patient.

Studies have also shown that falls within a healthcare facility (now a “NEVER” event) cost between $11,000 and $14,000. Regular and timely rounding, done “ALWAYS” can reduce falls dramatically.

Constantly using the Visilert device will make it virtually impossible to miss a patient hourly round, thus leading to a reduction in falls and a
significant return on your modest investment in the device.

Hourly patient rounding reduces call lights by 38%, patient falls by 50% and skin breakdowns by 14%, while improving patient satisfaction scores.

Reduce patient skin breakdowns

Failure to identify that a patients skin is beginning to breakdown can lead to pressure ulcers. Through regular timley rounding on a patient while focusing on “positioning” will decrease their risk of developing a costly pressure ulcer.

Consistent use of the Visilert device to insure timely rounding is accomplished (“ALWAYS”) with a focus on the four P’s including positioning the patient and assessing their skin will dramatically reduce the risk of their developing a pressure ulcer (by as much as 14%). Thus reducing additional cost to the health system for allowing one of these “NEVER” events to occur. All at a very low cost.

Reduce nurse call lights

A recent study has shown that by “ALWAYS” doing consistent and timely rounding on patients you can reduce their use of call lights by almost 40%. Thus reducing the patients anxiety and reducing the stress on the patients caregiver.

This leads to an increase in patient satisfaction and potentially higher reimbursement to the facility through value based purchasing. Making the healthcare environment safer for the patient and creating less stress for our caregivers is the right thing to do.

Consistent “ALWAYS” use of the very economical Visilert device to insure hourly rounding occurs will readily pay for itself through fewer falls, fewer call lights, and less pressure ulcers. A small investment to improve both patient and staff
