HOSPITAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS

Healthcare facilities today face an increasing amount of challenges in regard to balancing productivity and patient safety. Government and accreditation standards continue to evolve and the demands required continue to escalate, which can create issues for hospitals and other healthcare facilities that do not have the proper equipment. Northeast Protection Partners provides the most advanced life safety, security, communications and management solutions.

PATIENT & STAFF SECURITY

  • Infant Protection
    • Hugs
      The threat of infant abduction from healthcare facilities is a major concern. Hospitals, once allowing open friendly access, are now forced to increase security and limit public access, including birthing and pediatric units. New developments in the art of infant protection systems provide for a safer and secure environment. Installation of an Infant Protection system will enable caregivers and parents to have complete confidence against such threats.
    • Kisses
      Part of the Hugs system, the Kisses compact tag operates in the same way as the previous, larger mother tag. Each mother is given a Kisses wrist tag that is bonded with her infant's Hugs tag at birth. From that point forward, the tags remain bonded throughout the hospital stay. Whenever a baby is brought to a mother, the Hugs tag will check for the right match and will generate an audible alarm, and sends a message to the system, if the match is incorrect.

      Benefits: Automatic match indication with an audible alert when a mismatch occurs; Not restrictive to few locations, but rather wide area coverage within the hugs system; Compatible with existing Hugs system, with the addition of a software license, kisses tags and appropriate bands; Waterproof and hypo-allergenic, like the Hugs tag, the Kisses tag is patient friendly; Tags are reusable and do not come in pre-matched sets; Tags support multiple births, no extra steps required
