Caring for patients is an enormous responsibility. It is crucial that you identify your patients quickly, accurately and easily at any moment in their treatment. Automatic identification systems help to exclude the possibility of human error by staff members and increase patients’ welfare. Below are our Smart Edge solutions for patient safety.
Identification labels and wrist bands, fitted with a barcode or RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), are ideal for healthcare. They drastically reduce the likelihood of errors when administering medication, blood transfusions and surgical interventions. Furthermore, they reduce paperwork and increase the productivity of your employees; they need to perform fewer manual checks.
As well as this, we offer solutions for wander detection and prevention for hospitals and care facilities. For this, we give every resident a small sender (RFID tag) and monitor exits using door controllers. If a patient or resident tries to leave, an alarm is sent to the caregiver on a screen, DECT or smartphone. We are then able to provide your staff members with the name and a photo of the resident on a screen or smartphone to dramatically assist in the search.
Mobile call system
With our portable call system where the patient presses a button to ask for help, the patient can move freely in the nursing department or even go to the cafeteria. His location is always known.
Internal Mobile Emergency Group
In an emergency, a nurse can press the button of a tag so that the internal emergency team can immediately come to the right room with a crash trolley with medication and defibrillator.
The most widely used solution today is Stanley Healthcare‘s MobileView platform (AeroScout) – more than 50 hospitals in Belgium are already using it.
