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'?
