It amazes me how these two totally different situations are relate and they both link to the importance of monitoring. I think about one of the staff members said they gave my father a call monitor. How did they expect him to call for help? They might as well had put him on a regular floor instead of ICU! Early warning signs…
The BEACH Analogy: “We were looking at other models of how patients should be observed and we noticed that Life Savers on the beach, were constantly monitoring the swimmers. As one life saver said, “If you wait until they wave their hands, it’s often too late.” So they were looking for early signs.” (Professor Clifford F Hughes Program Officer , Between the Flags Clinical Excellence Commission)
I never would have thought to use the job of a lifeguard on a beach to describe how important it is to monitor our loved. Not wait until the call for help, but continuously look for early signs of deterioration.
