"It's simple to use and whenever we need support, Accutech is prompt and helpful. Parents have loved that the bands are soft and don't irritate their infant’s skin. We plan on installing the Cuddles system in all new facilities."
- Chris Schroeder, OB Director, Crossing Rivers HealthFebruary 28, 2019
"I like the Cuddles soft band/tag being on the infant’s ankle instead of tugging on their navel cord (like other systems). Parents report issues with umbilical tags when changing the diaper and are always concerned about the device tugging on the navel. The Cuddles tag/soft band are out of sight and mind. This system promptly works and has gone off every time we had an infant too close to the exits."
- Rachael Winston, Director of Women’s Services, BBH – Walker Baptist Medical CenterFebruary 28, 2019
"The system is user-friendly and our nurses feel the soft bands on the leg do not cut the baby (like other systems). They alarm quickly if removed and Accutech representatives assist as needed and provide additional training upon request."
- Amy Buffamonte, Director of Newborn Nursery, Women’s Hospital at RenaissanceFebruary 28, 2019
"I prefer the Cuddles infant protection system over our previous security system for several reasons. Cuddles is more accurate in regard to the infant location and the problem that needs to be addressed. It alerts you to a band alarm, band removal, infant removed from the unit and low tag battery. The guessing is no longer there as to what the problem may be. Thanks for the great system and support!"
- Melissa Carter, Communication specialist, Baptist Health LexingtonFebruary 28, 2019
"Our staff loves the ease of discharging and adding babies. We don't have nuisance alarms and our safety factor has increased greatly. Service is always easy to access and responsive."
- Beth Cassidy, Maternity Director from Park Ridge HealthFebruary 28, 2019
"One of the key factors to us was a local source for support and maintenance. We aren't dependent on technicians having to fly in or support it remotely. They can be on-site quickly if we need them."
- C. Ann Hackett, Director of the Family CenterFebruary 28, 2019

Senior Living and Hospital Security Systems
Healthcare facilities pose unique challenges when it comes to maintaining high levels of asset and patient security. At Accutech, it’s our mission to provide security solutions to hospitals and long-term care facilities that make protecting residents, patients, and staff members as easy and cost-effective as possible. Our easy-to-implement solutions span from wander management and infant protection systems to access control and digital footprinting technologies.
Hospital Infant Security Systems
Protecting newborns is easier and more cost-effective than ever with Accutech’s infant security solutions. Accutech's Cuddles hospital infant security system is designed to help nursing, security, and IT maintain the safety of infants in obstetric, postpartum, and NICU units. Our infant protection system protects babies from abduction in hospitals by using security bands and integrated security systems. If a situation develops where there is an unauthorized band removal or movement of a baby toward an exit door, sensors will immediately warn hospital staff and automatically lock the doors. Accutech's nurse-friendly systems allow caregivers to focus on attending to infant health needs while reducing the threat of an infant abduction.
In addition to deterring abduction attempts, the tag can alert hospital staff to an infant’s location, triggering alarms and locking down doors when the tag gets too close to an exit, preventing an abduction. Security cameras and alarms can help notify hospital and security personnel for a fast response and recovery of the infant.

Senior Living Wander Management Systems
Senior living communities must balance resident independence with overall safety. This balancing act can be especially difficult in memory care facilities. Accutech provides a solution that enables senior living staff to provide residents with freedom and mobility without sacrificing security and safety. The ResidentGuard wander management solution, which utilizes a "wander wearable" bracelet, creates a secure environment for patients with Alzheimer's or dementia to move freely about their facilities while receiving the protection and care they need. The rate of people suffering from Alzheimer's in the United States could triple by the year 2050—from 5 million currently to about 13.8 million. At Accutech Security, we are keenly aware of this rapidly increasing need for facilities to provide wander management protection while maintaining the dignity of all residents.
The ResidentGuard wander management solution also protects senior living centers from liability. Healthcare organizations around the world rely on Accutech to provide cutting-edge solutions for their long-term care facilities.

Digital Footprinting for Increased Hospital Security
Infant security is a paramount concern for maternity wards, and baby identification is a critical part of keeping newborns safe. Footprints from birth are a recognized and viable way to uniquely identify each baby. CertaScan® by Accutech is the leading provider of digital footprinting, allowing hospitals to identify infants from the time of birth, and therefore improving infant safety and hospital security.
Digital footprinting makes your hospital safer, minimizing security vulnerabilities, and puts your hospital on the cutting-edge of technology. Implementing CertaScan® into your security solution improves operations and reduces liability risk along with improving parents' confidence in your ability to protect their newborns.
Read more about improving hospital security with digital footprinting solutions.
Electronic Access Control
Accutech Access is a reliable, affordable, and scalable electronic access control (EAC) solution that helps monitor the movement and security of residents or patients, nursing staff, and visitors. The system is directly integrated into the ResidentGuard wander management and Cuddles infant protection solutions and can integrate into additional security systems when scaled to the Accutech Integrated platform, improving the security of your healthcare facility.
Controlling who goes where and when improves patient and overall hospital security. Accutech Access is a robust solution that allows you to integrate cameras, parking garage access control, card swipes, biometric readers, asset tracking, and all of the critical systems in your healthcare facility into a single, easy-to-use solution.

Healthcare Security Solutions and Hospital Access Control FAQs
The decision to obtain hospital security equipment is a big one, and you want to make the right choice to protect your facility, patients, employees, visitors, and assets. You probably have a number of questions about the process of installing access control systems or other types of healthcare security solutions. Reach out to an Accutech Healthcare Security Solutions representative today to get your questions answered. You can also read through the healthcare security Q&A below for answers to common questions we receive.
Accutech offers a number of hospital security systems to protect patients, staff, hospital visitors, and hospital assets. We offer electronic access control systems, infant protection solutions, infant digital footprint scanning, wander management systems, and pediatric elopement systems. Our security solutions are designed to be flexible to suit the varying needs of different hospitals and healthcare facilities. You can also combine security equipment for thorough protection, plus our systems integrate with other security measures, nurse call stations, electronic access control, and a variety of additional communication platforms.
Accutech’s ResidentGuard, Kidz Pediatric Elopement System, Accutech Access, and Cuddles Infant Security Solution can all integrate with nurse call systems, pagers, cell phones, radios, and surveillance systems. Security in healthcare should be user-friendly and intuitive so workers want to use it, which increases effectiveness. Technology doesn’t have to be overly complicated—it should work for everyone.
Yes, we provide customer support and technical support to our customers 24/7, 365 days a year. We want you to feel comfortable operating your security systems knowing that if something isn’t working properly, you have the support you need to get things operational again in a timely manner. We have a professional team of support technicians who are only a phone call away.
You understand that security systems can provide physical safety for all who enter a hospital or healthcare setting, but are there other uses for security healthcare systems? There are many scenarios in which unauthorized access to a healthcare facility is undesirable. Here are some more reasons to install hospital security systems:
- Thwart criminals by preventing theft and crime
- Protection of infants and vulnerable patients
- Safeguard against wandering for at-risk patients
- Protect workers
- Provide peace of mind
- Reduce liability
- Lower insurance premiums
Hardware door switches will be installed at access points, and for most systems, you will need other hardware, such as card badges, readers, and a computer. The system can be as large or small as you need it to be and can be upgraded should you have additional security needs in the future. The software will also be used to control who can access your healthcare facility or parts of the facility. A computer will have user information and customization options for access credentials. For instance, physicians may have greater access privileges than clerical staff.
Yes, our systems are designed to work even if the internet goes down. Security systems that operate using wireless technology can run into issues when the Wi-Fi signal goes out or is weak. You can count on Accutech’s systems to continue protecting you, though, because our solutions don’t rely on Wi-Fi. Improve your security operations by partnering with Accutech today to obtain the most reliable, effective healthcare security systems in the industry.
