Virtual Sitter Services

Safe and effective sitter services at significantly lower cost

 

Our Hicuity Health sitter service virtualizes the traditional in-room sitter function. Virtual sitting delivers the same level of effective fall prevention and safety as in-person sitters with significant 30+% cost savings.

Hicuity Health virtual sitters continuously monitor designated patients for indications of risk events, such as falls, elopement, pulling at lines, and delirium. The service is enabled by two-way A/V capabilities and facility-specific escalation paths.

When a patient risk is identified, our technicians can intervene by verbally redirecting the patient, contacting the designated floor “runner”, or activating a distinct in-room alert to prompt urgent intervention from nearby floor staff.

Virtual sitter service delivers an in-room sitter level of safety with significant cost, administrative, and flexibility benefits.
