The risk of a patient getting out of a bed or chair and leaving themselves susceptible to injury is a problem many caregivers have to deal with on a daily basis. We offer bed and chair exit alarms that make this job easier and reduce the likelihood a patient will leave their bed and wander unsupervised while at risk of falling. The system can be connected the nurse call system using the provided connection lead or can be used stand-alone if preferred.
The bed or chair exit alarm notifies staff when a resident leaves their bed or chair. The alarm can sound locally in the room itself or it can be connected to a nurse call system so that the alarm is transmitted around the building. The system can also be supplied with portable pagers so that the alarm is sent to staff directly while they are on the move.
The system is supplied with an alarm box, a bed or chair sensor mat (depending on preference) and a nurse call connection lead.
The sensor mat is placed underneath the bed sheets or on top of the chair. The alarm box can then be fixed the bed frame or chair using the provided hanging brackets.
Note: If the facility has a nurse call system, the alarm box can be connected to this by plugging it into a nearby call point so that calls are sent around the building. In facilities without a nurse call system, the alarm box will sound an alert locally in the room!
The alarm box can also be used without a bed or chair mat by using the provided clip-on sensor. One end is attached to the alarm box and the other end is clipped onto the resident's clothing. If the resident moves out of the immediate area, the connecton is broken and an alarm is raised. This is ideal for use in toilets and bathrooms where a sensor mat cannot be used but staff still require notification if a resident begins to wander.
