Patient watch system

Monday June 26, 2017
G4S Virtual Patient Watch raises an alarm the instant a patient either attempts to get out of bed, or begins demonstrating escalating behaviour requiring immediate medical attention. G4S Virtual Patient Watch has a wide range of potential security and safety applications in a healthcare setting, including the provision of enhance monitoring and security of patients suffering from psychiatric illnesses or chronic conditions such as dementia. Central to the system is a high-resolution bedside camera with infra-red capability that allows it to function in the semi-dark of night time units. The camera senses the movement of a patient who is preparing to get out of bed or who is escalating in behaviour, triggering an alarm to alert security or medical staff. A speakerphone system allows for direct contact with the patient or clinical staff who can be alerted for immediate assistance.
