An early September webinar from the ECRI Institute aims to help hospital staff improve alarm-setting policies for successful compliance with The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goal on alarm safety.

The 90-minute online event, “Good Alarm Policies Are No Accident,” will help attendees learn how leading healthcare organizations have improved alarm-setting processes and what ECRI investigators have discovered in their investigations of accidents involving alarms.

Presenting in the webinar will be ECRI VP & senior investigator Michael Argentieri; Maria Cvach, RN, of The Johns Hopkins Hospital; and Sue Sendelbach, PhD, RN, and Stacy Jepsen, CCRN, of Abbott Northwestern Hospital. Jeremy Suggs, PhD, of ECRI Institute, will moderate the event. ECRI Institute’s Mark Bruley will participate in the Q&A session.

The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 3, 2014, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm EDT. The event is free to ECRI Institute members or $249 for nonmembers. For more information or to register for the event, visit the ECRI Institute website.
