How RTLS for Wander Management Works

Wandering Patients RTLS - How It Works

Keeping your patients safe, letting you focus on quality of care

Patients are assigned an active RFID tag to wear—attached via medical wrist bands, a silicon wearable band, a pendant, keychain or lanyard. Push button options are also available to allow patients to call for help. Tagged patients are instantly detected at exit doors, stairwells and elevators, and their presence can be configured to enable alarms and secure doors. The solution uses the GuardRFID suite of infrastructure hardware and AllGuard® enterprise software to identify tags, manage tag rules, activate alarms and control doors. The system can be configured to lock external exits if a patient suffering from Alzheimer’s approaches the exit doorway.

When you look at what it is that clinicians need to do and how they need to keep their patients safe, you need a product that is highly versatile, that doesn’t cause additional alarms, and is user friendly. And TotGuard is all those things. But secondly, I think GuardRFID’s customer service has been spectacular! "
