The Stand-Up Toilet Alarm is an alarm which can be placed on top of the toilet seat.
Stand-Up Alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient’s movement, without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. Sometimes the person may be able to walk, but may put themselves in danger due to dementia
The Stand-Up Toilet Alarm sounds when the person is about to stand up or has stood up from a toilet. The alarm noise is near the patient and this may help the patient to remember not to stand up, as the noise will stop if they sit down again. There is an adjustable volume control, and 10m / 33′ Extension Cords are available separately.
The alarm cord length is 3m / 9.8′ and is powered by batteries.
Have guidance from your facility’s Infection Control Department as they may override our recommendations.
Wipe both sides with a medical grade disinfectant. Do not wash. For hygiene reasons, this is a Single Patient Use product and should be disposed of after use. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.
Inspect the fabric and cable regularly to ensure there are no cuts or tears.
Be careful as the Alarm Pad may stick to the patient’s bottom when they stand up. The Alarm Pad will not fall into the toilet as it must be deliberately bent and forced into the opening.
It is important to realise that if the Alarm does sound, staff must go straight to the patient in case they are in danger of falling, or may already have fallen from the toilet. Please report any false alarms, or if the Alarm does not sound when the patient stands up.
