Kidz Pediatric Elopement Prevention Testimonials

The Kidz pediatric patient elopement system combines the technologies of our Cuddles soft tracking bracelet and our state-of-the-art wander management system to create a functional platform that can monitor young patients and prevent a child from leaving a protected area. Parents can feel confident their child is safe and secure, and hospitals can prevent elopement incidents.

Door locks are not always enough to prevent wandering behavior. A pediatric patient elopement system can be put in place in children’s hospitals, emergency departments, medical facilities, and other healthcare locations where children spend a significant amount of time. Child elopement is something that can be prevented with a working system that is non-invasive and practical.

Prevent Pediatric Wandering With Accutech's Kidz Pediatric Elopement System

Accutech's pediatric elopement system provides an additional level of protection for children. Nurses and healthcare professionals rely on security technology to ensure the safety of young patients while they receive treatment. This solution enables healthcare workers to carry out their duties while still allowing children to play and move around during their hospital stay.

Why Do Young Patients Wander?

Children who are hospitalized may have a natural curiosity and adventurous spirit, which can result in them wandering and putting themselves in danger. It's crucial that hospitals comprehend the reasons behind this behavior and take appropriate actions to deter it. Parents are also concerned about their children's safety and put faith in hospitals to take security measures to ensure their protection.

  • Some children are naturally curious, become fixated on a special interest, and may wish to explore their environment.
  • A child may wish to go to a place they love, such as a favorite playground, and they may attempt to go there themselves if adults are telling them they can’t go.
  • Some children become fixated on a special interest.

How Does Accutech’s Child Elopement Solution Work?

It’s important to find solutions that fit the needs of healthcare facilities as well as young patients. Accutech designed a system that reliably meets the needs of both. The system uses a patient wristband combined with a perimeter monitoring system to alert hospital personnel of a wandering incident.

This system is successful because children are able to move about secure areas of a hospital without nurses hovering over them, giving them some freedom while at a hospital. Meanwhile, the wristband protects them by alerting nursing staff of any incident in which a child has attempted to leave a secured area of the hospital or if the wristband has been tampered with in some way.

Nursing staff can respond quickly to alerts sent to the nursing station or alerts integrated with cell phones or other electronic devices. Healthcare personnel are able to avert wandering incidents before a child is in danger.

Elopement prevention is possible through a combination of diligence, security protocols, and reliable technology. Ensuring measures are in place to prevent elopement and wandering is key to maintaining a safe environment for all.

Pediatric Elopement Frequently Asked Questions

Even the best caregiver in the world can’t prevent a child from patient flight under every circumstance. That's why it's crucial to incorporate Accutech's Kidz patient elopement system. This system provides an extra layer of protection against wandering while reducing liability risks for hospitals and medical providers. Most importantly, it can save children's lives.

We understand you may have questions about how the Kidz wander system works. Here are some of the most common questions we receive. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to contact Accutech Healthcare Security Solutions directly to speak with a representative.

Why is pediatric elopement technology necessary?

Elopement behavior occurs for different reasons but is a particular risk for children with intellectual disabilities. Kids with a diagnosis of ASD (autism spectrum disorder) are known to engage in elopement behavior. While the cause of all flight behavior has not been thoroughly studied, the risks associated with this behavior are clear. Children who escape from a healthcare facility unaccompanied by an adult can become lost, hurt, or face other serious dangers (American Academy of Pediatrics). The Kidz system grew out of the need to protect kids with flight inclinations, no matter their causes. In the past, your only option after a child’s elopement was to call a local law enforcement agency. Kidz utilizes technology designed to prevent elopement and works for all children who attempt to wander from a secure environment such as a hospital, pediatric ward, or pediatric center. Now you can prevent elopement before it occurs.

What makes Kidz different from other elopement systems?

If you are worried about children wandering from a medical facility, you may think that any pediatric elopement system will do the job, but child elopement systems are not all equally effective. The Kidz system has been developed over decades, ensuring that this solution is the most successful at preventing child elopement and the outcomes that could follow. The Kidz system is user-friendly, reducing the time it takes to enroll and monitor patients and leaving hospital staff with more time for patient care. The monitoring of patient wandering is the most important part of an elopement system. While our competitors tout solutions that use WiFi, the Kidz system relies on a unique frequency transmission that eliminates false alarms and won’t go down due to internet outages. Plus, Accutech’s pediatric wander management solution is non-invasive and unobtrusive, so you get safe, dependable security without a lot of hassle or inconvenience.

Does your elopement prevention system come with technical support?

Yes! Our pediatric wander security solution comes with 24/7 phone and remote support Additionally, our local dealers are highly trained and offer first-class service and technical support. You can rest assured that help is there when you need it.

Are the Kidz wander bracelets comfortable?

Not all medical ID bracelets come with the comfort and security you desire for your patients. Kidz wander bands have been designed to provide superior comfort so that wearing an identification bracelet isn't an uncomfortable experience. Manufactured from soft yet strong materials, the Kidz elopement band can be easily adjusted to fit any wrist size in a few simple clicks. Furthermore, their designs are unobtrusive, allowing your patient to wear them in confidence without feeling out of place or drawing too much attention. When it comes to comfortable medical ID bracelets, the Kidz wander band is an ideal choice!

Is the Kidz patient elopement system affordable?

Accutech is proud to offer affordable security solutions because we believe that all hospitals and healthcare facilities should be able to purchase the security equipment they need to protect patients, staff, visitors, and property. As with any solution, the cost will vary depending on the scope of your project, the size of the area you need to protect, and the number of access points. However, when compared to the competition, Kidz is one of the most cost-effective solutions available. Fill out the form below or call us for a quote on your pediatric elopement security project.
