GFH Invests in Innovative TeleSitter System
Glens Falls Hospital has invested in an important tool to help keep patients safe and improve staffing efficiency. On December 3, 2015, we began using the highly regarded AvaSys® TeleSitter®system — 10 remote-controlled video cameras placed in the rooms of patients who are in need of constant, round-the-clock observation. Previously, GFH used sitters or patient care techs to stay with these patients, but this means there are fewer staff members on the floor to care for other patients.
