Answer preview…………………..

Frequent hospital alarms become ineffective and may result in alarm fatigue to caregivers and increased harm to patients due to unanswered alarms. Frequent hospital alarms may also lead to dissatisfaction among both caregivers and patients in the hospital. Hospital alarms are significant but when they become many and unnecessary, they can overwhelm the staff members as well as patients. Alarm fatigue can be described as overload of clinicians’ sensory systems when they are exposed to excess alarms. This exposure leads to desensitization to clinical alarms hence, causing deaths.
