Ensuring the safety of your residents is critical.
The potential dangers of wandering resident elopements are many and can have permanent, catastrophic effects.
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 eloping from the building entirely unnoticed.
Installing a wandering resident security system can’t prevent every potential wandering scenario. But it should absolutely be a key component of any wander prevention program. The Door GUARDIAN® wander management system 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.
