How do you ensure the safety of patients and residents?

Naturally, it’s crucial that your residents or patients are cared for in optimal safety. But how can you continue to optimally guarantee this, given all the challenges you face? Rely on the power of smart technology.

Safety in healthcare has much to do with being able to move and act safely, as a resident or a patient. The reality is that the elderly are not always able to move or perform certain actions without endangering themselves.

The reason might be a physical limitation, but it can equally well be psychological - just think of residents or patients who wander about and do not clearly understand that they reside in a healthcare facility. Earlier they were often shut up in locked wards, but today many care organisations are an open house, for them as well.

 

Safety also entails that you optimally care for your patients or residents. This challenge is greater than ever today, and certainly in residential care centres, since more and more of their residents require assistance. Today, people only move into a residential care centre when they already need a great deal of care.

This means that residential care centres have to look after more people intensively, often with the same number of personnel. And this while around one-half of those requiring assistance can no longer even ask for care, because they don’t realise that they need it.

As a healthcare organisation, you want to optimally protect your patients or residents. The people you are caring for and their family and loved ones expect that as well. But the question is how you can continue to assure the best care and safety without excessively restricting the freedom of patients or residents.

 

Or without your personnel constantly having to check on whether everything is all right for each patient or resident. Because that approach is too labour-intensive, while your employees might still have many other jobs to do.  

 

Rely on smart technology

Mobility and freedom might seem to run counter to safety, but our LynX® first solution reconciles these desiderata. Patients and residents don a wearable sensor that precisely but discreetly transmits the wearer’s position to our alarm and communication platform LynX® connect. The latter analyses the information and digitally alerts the proper caregiver when the monitored person is in danger or finds himself in an area where he shouldn’t be.

 

If we link an access control system to LynX® connect, your patients or residents can also be denied access to certain rooms, because the access door automatically closes when they approach them.

Moreover, it is possible to connect wearables from other manufacturers with our technology, which then monitor and forward vital health parameters of patients or residents. Conversely, caregivers too can themselves don a wearable, in order to raise the alarm if they are in danger (e.g. in a psychiatric ward).

 

Fewer false alarms, greater customisation

The LynX® connect platform doesn´t simply forward all of the received data to your staff. Via AI the system first analyses the data to check whether the monitored person is actually in a problematic situation. Only if that is the case does the system raise the alarm.

 

Caregivers therefore receive far fewer false alarms. At the same time, they only get an alarm when an individual violates his own personal rules. Perhaps one person may still freely leave the healthcare facility, but another may no longer do so? All individuals are monitored by the same technology, but with customised conclusions and actions.

Efficient evacuation via lighting

And what if everyone in the healthcare facility is at risk, for example in case of a fire? In that event LynX® lifeline ensures efficient evacuation, because every second saved can make the difference. With this solution your fire alarm system is linked to the LynX® platform and smart LED technology.

 

Does the control room detect an emergency situation via smoke alarms or push buttons? Then this information is shared with both managers in the building and concerned parties offsite. At the same time, the system sends an alarm with clear instructions to all kinds of devices and via different channels. For the fire team itself as well as for patients, residents, caregivers ...

 

In the meantime, smart LED lighting in the rooms and hallways indicates in an intuitive manner the optimal pathway for leaving the building, away from the seat of the fire. Or the lighting clearly indicates the location of the fire extinguishers - that too is possible.

 

Want to use our smart technology?

We’d be delighted to come visit you to review your needs together. And if our technology can offer an answer, we´ll show you exactly how during a demonstration in our offices. If you´re convinced, you’ll quickly receive an offer that is custom-tailored to your project.
