Hospital Sitters for Hospitalized Patients

Hospital Sitters for Hospitalized PatientsHospital sitters are increasingly being recognized as a legitimate - and even necessary - element of a well-supported hospital stay, especially to fill in the gaps for hospitalized Alzheimer's or dementia patients. As patient caregiver, hospital sitters can make a significant impact on patients’ experience by providing a watchful eye, curbing dangerous behaviors, and alerting nursing or medical staff at the first sign of a problem. However, sitters cannot aid or participate in any patient care and they must stay out of the way of hospital staff. Hospital sitters are under the direction of the patient registered nurse.

One of the most critical places to have a caregiver with you is during a hospital stay. Many people find this surprising. You would think that having nurses, doctors and medical staff so close by would make hospitals one of the safest places to be. Sadly, this isn't the case. With only one or two busy nurses working 12-hour shifts and handling many patients with critical needs, it can be a long wait between the time you push a call button and the time anyone comes to check on you. Plus, it only takes an instant for a dangerous fall to occur. Ten percent of fatal falls for older adults occur in hospitals. Alzheimer's disease, or other types of dementia, along with disorientation and medication are the leading factors that contribute to falls in hospitals.
