Leading Assisted Living Center Embraces Cutting-Edge Patient Safety

Technology

HONOLULU, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoana Medical, Inc. announced a partnership with Kahala Nui, a Life Care Retirement Community in Honolulu, Hawai'i, to deliver cutting-edge vigilance technology to patients and residents at their onsite Hi'olani Care Center. Kahala Nui joins a list of progressive healthcare facilities by providing the LifeBed(TM) Patient Vigilance System (LifeBed) technology that tracks a patient's or residents' vital signs, while minimizing the risk of falling out of bed, a major health risk with elderly patients. The LifeBed identifies patients as they begin to deteriorate and immediately notifies the nursing staff -- all invisible to the patient since there is no physical connection to the patient whatsoever.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), each year, an average nursing home with 100 beds reports 100 to 200 falls. About 1,800 older adults living in nursing homes die each year from fall-related injuries. Those who experience non-fatal falls can suffer injuries, have difficulty getting around, and have a reduced quality of life. About one out of five hip fracture patients dies within a year of their injury. Early recognition of fall risk, and instituting methods to prevent falls, are key components of a successful fall prevention and management strategy. Hoana's technology, which transforms any bed into a LifeBed, has been shown to successfully reduce hospital falls by over 90%.

"This partnership is a tremendous testament to the progressive leadership at Kahala Nui," said Dr. Patrick Sullivan, Ph.D. and chief executive officer of Hoana Medical. "Our experience shows that something as simple as finding patients in trouble early makes an enormous difference in their outcome, especially to patients that are elderly, frail, or slower to recover due to age. Providing 24-hour vigilance to the re
