Patient Monitoring Systems
A patient wandering system consists of a bracelet worn by the resident and a monitor(s) that looks over the protected area. The bracelet transmits a specific code identifying the resident.
The monitor looks for these codes and when the resident enters these areas, the monitor can signal alarms and lock down doors in specific areas or exits while the monitor displays the resident's name immediately. The bracelet worn by the patient is comfortable, practical and waterproof. The bracelet is warranted for 3 years and requires no battery replacement or maintenance for this period. The system can be tied to pocket pagers and has full reporting capabilities through management software.
Infant protection systems can provide an effective and reliable deterrent against abduction of infants. The combinations of tamper-proof infant tags with integrated receivers throughout the facility define safe areas while exit doors from the safe areas are equipped with monitors. A computer console displays a floor plan of the safe area with all the exits marked. The infant’s tag is automatically activated when it is secured to the child’s ankle or wrist. The computer automatically alerts staff of the newly activated tag, and pertinent information can be entered on the newly tagged infant. Tagged infants can move freely throughout the safe area and will only cause an alarm if brought through an alarmed door, which will be displayed at the console. A second tag worn by the parent will ensure they are the right child. The infant's tag and the parent's tag must electronically match or an alarm will be generated.
