Addressing Patient & Staff Safety in Healthcare
Patient and staff safety is of utmost importance in any healthcare setting. The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the vital role healthcare workers play and has further highlighted the extent to which protecting healthcare workers is key to keeping patients safe and ensuring a functioning healthcare system and society. Staff are often exposed to unprecedented levels of risk, both physically and mentally, and are forced to direct their already limited resources at monitoring for potential incidents instead of treating health issues.
Teldio’s Avigilon Integration for Healthcare
Teldio’s Avigilon integration can help address this growing issue. Leveraging Avigilon Control Center (ACC) and our Teldio Edge Gateway, Teldio video solutions extend the power of video analytic events by triggering actions from a wide range of external systems, such as motion, alarm systems, panic buttons, humidity, temperature, etc.
In an effort to increase safety and reduce violence against employees in emergency departments and other healthcare settings, panic buttons can be mounted in strategic locations throughout facilities. In case of an emergency, a button press triggers an alert to the Teldio Edge Gateway, which communicates with Avigilon ACC to initiate high quality camera recordings. Simultaneously, the Teldio Edge Gateway also displays the event on the alarm dashboard and sends a message to security personnel’s devices to alert them of the incident.
Our video solutions also enable healthcare clients to detect staff or other individuals in unauthorized areas, via motion triggers, and to quickly identify and flag atypical events. Violations trigger signals to the Teldio Edge Gateway, which alerts security personnel.
If someone opens a medicine cabinet or safety assets, such as fire extinguishers or automated external defibrillator devices, and moves any of these assets, the security violation triggers a signal to the Teldio Edge Gateway to alert security. The Teldio Edge Gateway can also send a message to Avigilon ACC to engage the camera closest to the event, tag the video, and start recording at high resolution.
A Teldio video solution increases safety for staff, first responders as well as patients and visitors, and clear video evidence can be obtained should incidents occur. Seamless integration with the Avigilon ACC system provides a powerful and unified security solution to enable healthcare facilities to reduce response time, mitigate risk, and proactively monitor and secure their assets.
