Patient & Staff Safety
AeroScout’s patient and staff safety solutions provide 24x7 security for at-risk patients in healthcare facilities. Our unique Wi-Fi-based systems leverage the hospital’s existing pervasive standard wireless network. Patients, infants and staff are tracked throughout the entire hospital, even in outdoor spaces, and the monitoring is not limited only to certain areas but is campus-wide. The AeroScout solution enables hospitals to:
The solution includes the following applications:
Immediately alert staff members when an at-risk patient exits the ward/building or enters a restricted area by employing a variety of notification methods (e.g., SMS, pages, instant alerts on workstations and VOIP phones). In addition, AeroScout’s MobileView displays live tracking and the historical path of wandering patients and AeroScout’s Instant Notifier allows for comprehensive workstation alerting with in-depth status information.
Patients, such as elderly patients, wearing tags with call buttons can trigger panic or distress alerts. Notifications along with the patient’s location are sent to staff and security.
Staff members carry call-button tags, which can be triggered to alert other staff upon encountering an emergency or in duress situations. The alert is accompanied by the real-time location of the individual requiring assistance.
Integration to Nurse Call Systems
The AeroScout solution integrates to existing Nurse Call systems to detect staff presence in patient rooms and automate Nurse Call room status light indicators. It reduces the manual entry of entrance/exit events and provides historical location data of nurses.
"We have always been aware of the need for additional measures when it comes to tracking patient movements around the hospital to maintain their safety and well-being. AeroScout offered the most comprehensive solution with a user friendly and scalable Wi-Fi-based solution"
