The SilentAlert Resident Attendant System is the only system designed specifically for the Assisted Living and Memory Care Unit environments to help caregivers better manage their residents and maintain their comfort, safety and high quality of life.
Current methods of monitoring residents involve one or more of the following:
- manual and periodic checks
- bed alarms
- nurse call buttons
- emergency response devices
Each of these methods are flawed. Manual/periodic checks are not effective in that they are only spot checks, they tend to disrupt the quality of sleep for the resident and they distract the caregiver by forcing them to check residents who are asleep while another resident may be laying on their bedroom floor needing help.
Audible bed alarms result in confusion and agitation for the residents and have been shown to create at least as many problems as they solve.
Nurse call buttons and emergency response pendants are simply not reliable because they depend on the resident to push the button -- something that they often do not do. In addition, these devices are REACTIVE, not proactive in that they wait for something to happen before they get help.
The SilentAlert Resident Attendant System monitors your residents at night, when they are in their room sleeping. Statistics show that almost half of the falls in ALF's and ASCU's happen during this time, when the residents are behind a closed door and also when you have the lowest caregiver to resident ratio. If a resident is out of bed longer than a pre-determined amount of time (set by the caregiver), the system silently notifies the caregiver so that they can PROACTIVELY help the resident return to bed safely. This proactive approach, when used as a component of your mobility management program, may help you prevent falls.
If a resident does fall, the Silent Alert system will track that fall and document it in accordance with local and state requirements. The incident tracking system is completely paperless and significantly reduces the work associated with managing the compliance program for fall tracking.
