AZ Sint Lucas (Ghent)

In order to centralise the campuses of Volkskliniek and Sint-Lucas on a single site, the AZ Sint-Lucas Ghent is building two new care wings which will house several specific day hospitals and departments for oncology and surgery. They wish to make the experience for the patient, who usually stays there for only a very short time, as optimal as possible. These parameters also determine the technologies in the new structure. Precisely how is the Ghent-based hospital taking up this challenge?

 

AZ Sint-Lucas is the first hospital ever to choose LynX® first, i.e. a person-following call system, instead of a classic room-bound solution. When the patient activates an alarm, the localisation technology of LynX® first can inform the care units at all times exactly where the call is coming from, no matter where the patient is located. Moreover, the latter is reassured, because he receives a message as soon as the care unit confirms his call.

 

In addition, with LynX® lifeline the hospital is opting for intelligent LED lighting in the hallways, as a result of which the already-foreseen investment in lighting can be more broadly exploited. The lighting also functions as a door messenger system, emergency lighting and can, during evacuation or necessary resuscitation, point the way to the emergency exit or the patient involved.

 

Finally AZ Sint-Lucas is also relying on the cutting-edge technology of LynX® connect for the building control system. We connect the technologies that are present (barriers, pumps, HVAC, etc.) in the organisation with I/O modules and provide the Technical Department with a dashboard on which the staff can quickly and easily indicate that they are responding to an alarm.

    AZ Sint-Lucas is a modern and social hospital in the centre of Ghent. AZ Sint-Lucas has 785 beds for hospitalisation + 122 beds for day hospital. Around 64,000 patients are admitted annually, of which 33,909 as outpatients (2017 figures).

    IN A NUTSHELL:

     

    • LynX® first person-following call system

    • LynX® lifeline LED lighting with visualisation of care alarms

    • LynX® connect dashboard for building control system

    The philosophy behind the products of 25-8 closely matched what we were looking for. Specifically, we wanted a product that converts a technical fact into something intuitive for the patient. LynX® lifeline is a fine example of that.´

    Mathieu Massart, Facility and Technologies Manager, AZ Sint-Lucas

    Another process that we optimised is the changeover from a room-bound to a patient-following call system.
