Hourly rounding is an evidence based practice that when used with the right technology and process can reduce patient falls, cut down on call lights, save time and improve patient satisfaction.

As we usher in 2016, our team decided to reflect upon our accomplishments from the year before. As we analyzed data we collected about Nobl Hourly Rounding's Friends and Family Portal*, we came across some seriously staggering numbers. You're in luck, because we've created an infographic to show you just how much was communicated in 2015.
