How RTLS for Staff Duress Works

Staff Duress RTLS

Deliver real-time safety to staff in hospitals and long-term healthcare facilities

Staff members are assigned an active RFID tag with call button support . This can be worn in a wristband or attached to a lanyard. The tags communicate with the GuardRFID infrastructure in real-time to facilitate staff location and alerts in the AllGuard® software if the tag call button is pressed. When the alarm is received in real-time, the software can be configured to generate various responses, including sending notifications to authorized personnel (for example, security guards) or triggering an audible alarm to help diffuse the situation.
