Ohio’s Light of Hearts Villa has deployed a real-time location system to better identify residents in need of services. The assisted-living facility provides a residential living environment for more than 75 senior citizens, and one of its main priorities is to ensure the ongoing safety of its elderly residents. Each resident wears a wireless tag on a lanyard, enabling him or her to call for help from anywhere within the facility. Employees can view system data from computers at nursing stations, and receive alerts via text messages on their mobile devices. All system activity is captured in a database, and a variety of reports can be generated to measure performance, as well as analyze residents’ changing needs. Learn how the wireless alert system is providing the facility with a modern method for helping ensure residents’ safety and comfort, as well as improving the nursing staff’s performance by establishing timeframes for measuring response times.
