Hospital Safety and Security

Australian hospitals are subject to volatile and often dangerous situations. Stakeholders can be put at risk on a daily basis by individuals on and off-site, as well as by factors beyond their control. Whether it be a mental health patient abusing a nurse, a child being abducted or a natural disaster, measures need to be taken to minimize risk where possible.

The appearance of Integrated Wireless (IW) as the sole Duress and Messaging provider at the recent 5th Annual Hospital & Healthcare Security & Safety Conference on the Gold Coast proves a commitment to work with all facilities interested in protecting stakeholders on site.

Issues addressed surrounded the prevention of aggression in Emergency Departments, change management, as well as emergency and security planning for major events. Shaun Evans, Security Operations Manager of Canterbury District Health Board, cast our minds back to the horrific earthquakes that rocked Christchurch 18 months ago. His knowledge and advice around security response coordination was priceless and well received by the audience.

IW specialise in duress and integrated communication solutions to minimise the daily risks associated with running a hospital. Our mobile handsets can support voice, messaging and duress in the one device, and all 3rd party systems (fire alarms, access control, etc.) can integrate via IW's unique software applications.

In addition, Infant Protection Systems and Wandering Resident Solutions are offered to help your facility build and retain a reputation as a safe-haven for loved ones.
