A recent report in Scotland found that more than 11,000 patients, many of whom were vulnerable, had left hospitals without being discharged by doctors. Click here to read the full article.
Could incidents like this be avoided with the use of Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), which use Wireless LAN (WiFi) systems to accurately locate people and assets.
Integrated Wireless have just released the new Ekahau W4 wristband RTLS tag. The new W4 patient tag is a comfortable wristband design, with detachable bands and an integrated assistance button.
Deploying the W4 patient tag allows staff to search and locate patients though easy-to-use graphical user interface software. In addition administrators can set alerts that are sent to security and clinical staff when tags leave specific areas.
The W4 tag is 100% waterproof, can be sterilised with fluids or wipes, and has rechargeable batteries with long battery life.
So it's out with the old.....
.....and in with the new W4 tag.
