Fall Alert Your Guide to Medical Alerts

Making sure your fall alert is plugged in at all times…

There are a few simple things that you can do to make sure that your fall alert is plugged in and operational at all times. First off, when plugging in your system, do not plug the electrical cord into a power outlet that’s controlled by one of your light switches. If it is controlled by a light switch, you or your guests may use that switch and turn off the power to the machine… while most fall alert systems have a back up battery of around 20 hours, a set up like this is far from ideal. Secondly, tape your fall alert’s electrical plug to the wall where it is plugged in. This will help you and everyone else remember that the cord is for the fall alert and is not to be unplugged. The last and most important tip is to test regularly. Lots of companies ask for you to test their fall alert systems once every month. Doing so is the best way to make sure that the equipment is plugged in, working right, and that you will be able to get help if an emergency happens. So mark it on your calendar!
