Just in time for the holidays, our good friends at the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (more acronymically known as AAMI) have released an Alarm Compendium (isn't that a fancy title!) to assist healthcare organizations meet the challenges of (our other friends-isn't it good to have so many friends!) The Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goal on Clinical Alarms for which Phase 2 (is it really Phase 2? I've kind of lost track since this the second iteration of the Patient Safety Goal, so why don't we call this v.2.2?) kicks in next month. I haven't had the chance to look through the whole thing, but I have a sneaking suspicion that we might be observing some of the practices and activities outlined in the Compendium as a benchmark for performance during the 2016 survey year (those of you who have been following this topic closely will recognize some of the 10 Ideas for Safe Alarm Management).
