Hospice improves safety for nurses
23 January 2013
St. Luke's Hospice, a Sheffield based charity caring for adults with incurable diseases, has adopted Connexion2's Identicom lone worker security device to protect its community nurses when working alone. The hospice
The hospice has chosen the fully managed SoloProtect solution, which incorporates Connexion2's Identicom, supported with a range of services as part of a fixed, inclusive price including SIM Card and Airtime, 24/7 link to Alarm Receiving Centre monitoring, training and a dedicated customer support team.
When community nurses are working alone they can activate the 'Amber Alert' function as part of their dynamic risk assessment. This allows them to leave a quick 20- second voice message outlining whom they are with, where they are and what risks they are facing. This is only accessed by the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) should there be a 'Red Alert' subsequently actioned on the device.
