Alarm Fatigue in the Hospital

Pagers, phones, beepers, beeping lanyards, computers, intercoms.... the beeps, alarms, reminders, are not in short supply in the ER (or elsewhere in the health center). At some point there appears to be a level of fatigue, or perhaps a 'boy who cried wolf' syndrome. Repeated alarming may in fact diminish healthcare as providers become immune to the consistent barrage. How does your workplace manage alarms and do you find you're starting to suffer from 'alarm fatigue'?

  10. I could imagine getting really worn out from running around helping and having your pager go off a lot. I guess its all in the process of becoming a skilled nurse. I have a couple of friends who are on their way to becoming a nurse. I do say, they have acquired a really good talents over the years for working in healthcare. Maybe one day they can teach me their ways.
