“After researching a few companies, we found that Accutech had the most experience, best technology and highest level of professionalism and sales support.” Said Al Arzola, TLC Care Center’s facility manager.” The need for such a system stems from TLC’s expansion/remodeling of two separate memory care units.
The Resident Guard cut-band wandering system is a software-enhanced solution designed to deliver maximum hardware capabilities coupled with intuitive, easy-to-use software. If a band is removed, a “band alarm” will sound and the facility goes into a “lockdown” mode. The cut-band system also maintains the traditional functionality of a wandering system by providing loiter, door-ajar, supervisor and door alarms. The software can also provide reporting and resident identification.
Something else that stands out about the Accutech Resident Guard wandering system is the capability to turn resident tags on/off. This is done through a handheld device called the Secure Tag Activator/Deactivator (STAD). An LED on the tag is also a great feature that allows the staff to know that the tag is functioning through a visual protocol, as opposed to continually checking with a handheld device. Combining these features with one of the most interference-free RFID frequencies for wandering systems makes the Accutech Resident Guard system one of the best on the market.
All the Resident Guard systems can be interfaced with card readers and various access control components across a long term care facility or hospital. It’s also possible to interface with nurse call and paging systems.
