Benefits

Oxevision gives teams the clinical insights they require to intervene proactively and to plan care so that they deliver safer, higher quality and more efficient care. Inpatient and residential care providers realise an immediate step change and continuous improvement in care by deploying the Oxehealth Service, which includes Oxevision.

Clinicians use our service to make a step change in many care outcomes. Here are the most common:

How Oxevision helps clinicians to reduce self-harm

Patient bedrooms are an area of high risk for self-harm incidents, including ligatures. Self-harm incidents can be life-changing for patients and traumatic for families and staff.

Oxevision alerts clinicians to high-risk activity that could be an early warning sign of self-harm, such as spending extended periods of time in an en-suite bathroom or dwelling in a doorway.  These alerts enable staff to attend to patients proactively, reducing the risk of harm.

“A staff member had just spoken to a patient a couple minutes ago and their conversation gave me an inkling that we should check on her. I tried to take a vital sign but she wasn’t still, however I saw something shine in the camera and went to her room to check. We were able to verbally de-escalate the situation and had a long conversation with the patient."
Helen McWilliams
Senior Healthcare Assistant, mixed assessment unit, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
“We were concerned about a patient that was known to be at high risk of ligating. In this case, we used the Oxehealth system to take a spot check vital sign measurement and ensure she was ok in her bedroom. When doing so we could see that she was trying to tie something. We went to her room and removed the item before she could come to any harm. We’ve caught a few potential ligatures early in this way.”

"We have some patients that will self-harm as a form of communication - their behaviour escalates to a point that they self-harm, knowing a staff member will need to intervene and that they will be put on 1-to-1 observations with a staff member. I think these interventions from staff can reinforce their behaviour and it doesn’t always help them."
Ann Teemal
Ward Manager, female acute ward, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
“A [COVID-19 positive] patient was at significant risk of suicide and so staff were able to remotely monitor her to minimise her risk of self-harm and also reduce the risk of transmission for staff.”

"With Oxehealth, we can measure her breathing rate even when she is covered and know that if her breathing rate drops even slightly below what we would expect, she's in trouble and we can attend to her immediately.”
Jane Biner, Charge Nurse
Female acute ward, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
"I had a feeling she might self-harm, so in between her observations I took a vital signs measurement using Oxehealth and I saw her trying to tie a ligature in her bedroom. Within 2 seconds I was knocking at her bedroom door and quickly intervened to cut the ligature.”
Nelson Ncube
Senior Healthcare Assistant, female acute ward, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
"We have several patients with personality disorders that cause them to act spontaneously based on their thoughts. It’s very common for them to self-harm and we can’t always pick up on it in between our checks."
Denise Cracknell
Service Manager, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
"With Oxehealth, not only have we reduced the risk of serious incidents happening and improved patient safety, we will be able to reduce the suffering of staff and patients following a tragic incident which is invaluable to us.”
