Dutch Hospital Adopts AiRISTA Flow RTLS for Staff Alerting on AiRISTA Flow RFID Badges and Ascom Handsets
At the world-renowned Bouman Mental Healthcare in Rotterdam, Netherlands, caring for patients with addiction and other psychological conditions can be challenging and sometimes unpredictable for staff and caregivers. Caregivers need to take care of their patients; however patients under the influence of medications, distraught family members and other factors can compromise caregiver safety. In staff duress emergency situations, it is essential that caregivers are able to request help and receive assistance quickly. Since hospital employees are always moving, Bouman Healthcare needed a mobile emergency alerting system with panic button functionality to help locate staff emergencies quickly, shrink emergency response times and ensure that nearby personnel could quickly respond to caregiver requests for help.
