Nurse Safety and Hospital Security
Hospitals around the world struggle with workplace violence. The Center for Personal Protection and Safety reports that healthcare professionals are 16 times more likely to be attacked on the job than any other service professional.
Mobile Duress Panic Buttons
Luckily, there is a system available that directly addresses workplace violence in hospitals and works to increase nurse safety and security. Panic buttons have been found to be the single most effective method of violence prevention according to the Emergency Nurses Association. While traditional hardwired panic buttons are attached to a wall or a desk, mobile panic buttons or duress pendants are completely mobile.
Enterprise Mobile Duress
Enterprise mobile duress systems place wireless panic buttons in the hands of nurses and staff. The key to a mobile duress system over traditional security systems is the integration of mobile duress panic buttons into the existing security infrastructure. By pressing a simple button, responders can be notified of the situation, reducing response times when they matter most. Peer response, law enforcement and on-site security can be notified of the situation at hand depending on the policy and procedures in place at the hospital.
