Alarms are essential in ensuring the safety of patients in assisted care environments, especially those who may be left unattended for extended periods of time. Some are designed to provide patients with an easy, quick way to contact caregivers in the event of a fall, while others notify the caregiver if the patient begins to wander – information that is necessary to protect people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. When used properly, the correct alarm will provide security for the patient, and peace of mind for the caregiver.
Here are some features to consider as you examine our many options:
Bedside alarms or sit up alarms sound when the patient gets out of the bed, chair, or wheelchair. Designed to prevent patients from falling or wandering around, these alarms are placed on the bed, chair, or floor near the doorway.
A bedwetting alarm sounds when moisture is detected, letting caregivers know when a patient has soiled his/her adult diaper or undergarment.
Door alarms alert caregivers when patients wander and try to leave the room. This alarm is attached to the door jamb, activating when the door is opened.
The seatbelt alarm is ideal for wheelchair patients who tend to take off their seatbelts, or who are at risk for falls.
The caregiver pager allows patients with limited mobility to call a caregiver for help.
Patient alarms use audible, vibratory, or a combination of both alerts. Some audible alarms offer tone sounds and/or a voice command that enables the caregiver to communicate with the patient directly.
Look for alarms with volume control. The alarm should be loud enough to alert caregivers, but not too loud as to not wake or disturb other patients.
In some cases – such as when a patient moves in their bed – a false alarm may accidentally sound. Certain models, like the Lumex Fast Alert Basic Patient Alarm, come equipped with a delay function that reduce the likelihood of these false alarms.
Patient alarms use a variety of different batteries. Some alarms require 9V batteries, while others use AA batteries. Some models can be plugged in with an AC adapter.
Patient alarms are designed provide support, comfort, and safety. We carry a large selection of scooters to accommodate all patients and caregivers. If you still need help choosing a patient alarm, please call us at 1-800-998-7750 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
