The Oxehealth Digital Care Assistant system acts as assistant paying attention to every room when staff can’t be there: customers install a secure optical sensor that generates the alerts and reports staff need.
Falls are common among hospital inpatients. For the patient, consequences may include fracture, fear of falling, anxiety and depression and loss of confidence, all of which can lead to greater disability. Falls by inpatients often result in increased duration of stay, as well as a greater chance of unplanned re-admission or of discharge to residential or nursing home care.
