“The Remote Patient Safety Monitoring system was implemented at Bridgepoint and Mount Sinai in April 2020 to support care for patients with COVID-19. The system has now been implemented across both hospitals for its original intended use – monitoring patients at risk of falls. It is now used on all of the medical and surgical units at Mount Sinai, and recently launched at Bridgepoint on the renal and stroke care units. Patients at high risk of falling are being observed remotely by the Remote Patient Safety Monitors (RPSMs) in the Central Monitoring Station located at Mount Sinai. The clinical teams communicate and collaborate with the RPSMs across campuses to help keep our patients safe.”
