per month for 12 beds, which translated to about 96 alarms per patient day," said Jim Welch, Vice President of Patient Safety Initiatives at Masimo. "The high rate of false alarms due to conventional pulse oximetry's limitations made monitoring on the general floor impractical, if not impossible. With just 4 alarms per patient per day at DHMC, Masimo's revolutionary Measure-Through-Motion pulse oximetry finally enables accurate and reliable monitoring on general care floors."

"Our nurses are discovering patients in need of attention, much sooner than before," stated Nancy Karon, BSN, RN, Clinical Coordinator, DHMC. "Patient SafetyNet has improved patient care with high levels of nurse satisfaction because they know they are able to deliver the best possible quality of care to their general care floor patients."
