Alarm fatigue occurs when excessive alarms cause nurses to disregard alarms posing a significant patient safety threat. This quality improvement project utilized the plan-do-check-act approach to examine the impact of daily electrocardiographic electrode changes on the frequency of technical related cardiac monitor alarm events on two adult nursing units. All technical related cardiac monitor alarm events decreased during the intervention period; specifically, by 20.6% and 71.0% on the first and second nursing unit respectively.
