We expect our hospitals, schools, and other public facilities to be safe and secure. It is essential for these facilities to have the right security and alarm systems in place in order to ensure the safety of students, residents, patients, and workers. Accutech provides wander alarm systems combined with access control to monitor those going in and out of the facility and the movements within the facility.
Wander Alarm for Healthcare Facilities
Many healthcare facilities choose to invest in wander alarm and access control systems for the safety of their patients, residents, and staff. A wander alarm can serve several purposes. First, wander alarms help to keep patients in hospitals and residents of senior living facilities from inadvertently harming themselves. For example, an individual with Alzheimer's can easily become confused and lost or even attempt to flee the building without supervision. When this occurs, an accident is likely to happen. A wander alarm prevents this situation from arising in the first place because it alerts staff when an individual is moving beyond a secured area.
Another use for wander alarms is in keeping babies and small children from harm while in hospitals. Unfortunately, abduction from hospitals is a real risk. A wander alarm system catered to small children in the form of monitored bracelets will sound an alarm if the child is moved outside the hospital and alert staff of a possible abduction.
Wander Alarm for Schools
We rely on schools to keep our nation's children safe. In the modern world, schools are posed with more risks than ever before, which is why it is so important for schools to implement security measures that address these new risks. Access control is a key component of school safety. Knowing where students, staff, and visitors are within the school allow administrators to react quickly to any incident that may occur.
