Ensure Residents Safety & Security

wander management

The potential dangers of wandering residents are significant and can have permanent, catastrophic effects. Secure Care provides several solutions for senior living facilities, including our Door GUARDIAN solution and our  ENVisionIT® RTLS solution) which provides patient and staff safety, workflow optimization, and improve patient support. With our easy to use software locating a missing device or wandering patient in real time is a proven time saver when timing is crucial. Searching is easy and flexible with several search options available. The information is then displayed as either a list/table or an icon(s) on a map given precise accuracy. Alerts can be sent to mobile devices.

High risk residents or patients, like those in dementia or memory care units, wander for a variety of reasons.  Sometimes due to confusion, sometimes looking for something or someone, or sometimes because they are just plain lost.  Wandering residents can find themselves in unsafe areas of a facility or outside without notice. Once an asset has been tagged, staff members can easily search for the item using the RTLS software and locate within +-1ft of accuracy within minutes. This will dramatically free up time for the nursing staff to focus more on caring for patients.

Installing a wandering resident security system can’t prevent every potential wandering patient from moving around but it is a key component of any wander prevention program.  The Door GUARDIAN® Universal Series wander management solution allows facilities and hospitals to:

  • Monitor wandering residents or high-risk patients, while maintaining their dignity to move freely about a facility
  • Secure or lock and alarm specific doors if a resident attempts to leave
  • Track the exact location of a wander prone patient or resident, and create rules to automatically trigger alert or alarm notifications to staff (when used with the ENVisionIT® RTLS solution)
  • Take immediate action to protect residents or patients in your care based on notifications receive via the Mvision® mobile app

Whether you are looking to protect wandering residents through access control or need a more dynamic system to permit normal traffic flow, our wander management experts can help design a system to fit your facility’s needs and budget.
