Patient alarms are designed to inhibit patients from wandering. These alarms have tether clips and adjustable cords for easy mounting on a bed or chair or they can be clipped to a patient’s gown. Patent alarms should be seriously considered for those patients who have ambulating restriction or with mild dementia. Alarms are well suited for monitoring those patients who should but don’t call for help when getting out of a bed or chair. Alarms can be adjusted so that the sound of the alarm can be heard at various distances in the house.
