The Leaf Patient Monitoring System intelligently automates turning schedules for large groups of patients and prioritizes patient turning needs. The wireless sensor's tri-axial accelerometer accurately monitors patient position (Left, Back, Right), alerts when assisted turns are necessary and confirms adequate turns are being performed. The system also ensures that sufficient tissue depressurization occurs between turns.
Despite the growing emphasis placed on pressure ulcer prevention, pressure ulcers continue to be the most common preventable hospital-acquired condition. The Leaf Patient Monitoring System has been recognized as a valuable tool that enables caregivers to effectively maintain compliance with established guidelines for patient turning in an effort to prevent pressure ulcers.
Simple as 1-2-3
- Plug our antennas into any available wall outlets (just like a night light).
- Apply the Leaf Patient Sensor to patient's upper torso (just like an EKG sticker).
- Register patients through the Leaf user-interface and select the desired turning parameters. The system then automatically starts coordinating and optimizing your patient turning schedules.
The Leaf Patient Monitoring System helps hospitals rein in HAPU-related costs by improving prevention efforts. Since hospitals are paid on performance, we believe we should be too. That's why use of the
system requires no upfront capital investment, no installation charges, and no term commitments. Position yourself to accrue astounding savings on HAPU costs as you go, starting from day one.
For patients: The Leaf Sensor is light-weight and unobtrusive. Patients are able to move about freely and bathe normally.
For caregivers: The Leaf system offers a high-degree of configurability in order to best accommodate
existing nursing workflows. Caregivers can choose desired turning intervals, tissue decompression times, and much more.
The Leaf Patient Monitoring System automatically documents any adequate patient self-turns and provides alerts whenever a caregiver-assisted turn is required. In such a fashion, the system ensures
compliance with patient turning protocols, while also improving system efficiency by minimizing any unnecessary caregiver-assisted turns.
