How Bedford VA Uses Remote Patient Monitoring to Prevent Falls
One of the primary objectives of hospitals nationwide is to stop patients from falling.
Falls are a costly endeavor for both patients and hospitals alike. Patients hope to recover quickly during their hospital stay, and being injured from falls prolongs their recovery. Preventing patient falls helps hospitals reduce unexpected costs, improve their reputation — and most importantly — help patients recover more easily.
A solution to these challenges is remote patient monitoring technology. The Bedford Veterans Affairs Medical Center, also known as the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, found this innovative solution in NOVA (Nursing Observation and Virtual Assistant).
