Most falls in the hospital are preceded by delirium, which occurs in at least 1 in 3 older patients, yet is usually not detected and appropriately acted on. Our avatars reduce delirium risk and enable early detection using evidence-based protocols like cognitive reorientation and continuous attention assessment.
Aside from delirium, many falls occur because patients do not proactively ask for toileting assistance: 50% of hospital falls occur to/from/in the bathroom. Our avatars frequently assess patient comfort and needs and call the nurse station as necessary to ensure that patients never feel the need to leave their bed on their own.
The most influential aspect of a hospital's patient satisfaction score is perceived nurse responsiveness, which can improve with the addition of bedside companion. Our own patient satisfaction rate is 95% and our avatars have been shown to significantly improve patients' perceived connection to their care teams.
