Nurse call systems don’t work for residents with dementia
Residents with memory impairment or dementia are typically unable to use traditional call systems, meaning they are unable to call for help when they need it, or may use the system inappropriately leading to unnecessary calls. Systems that require residents to wear wrist bands or trackers are often ineffective if residents remove the device, forget to wear it, or if the device requires frequent recharging.
Tagless monitoring directs
care where and when it is needed
- For residents that may be at risk of falls, staff are alerted as soon as they get out of bed.
- Staff may be alerted as soon as a resident enters the bathroom, or only if they are in there for an unusually long period of time.
- Restlessness, pacing, rummaging and other anxious behaviors may also create alerts.
- Notifications may be sent if a resident leaves his or her room in the middle of the night and goes into another resident’s room.
