The importance of hands-free security & access control within the Health Sector
Controlling access to hospitals or establishments within the Health Sector is essential to allow staff to easily move around specific areas including sterile environments such as operating theatres and laboratories.
Nortech offer hands-free access control solutions which are both secure yet user-friendly. This benefits maintenance staff, porters, ambulance drivers, nurses, doctors and surgeons. It can restrict access to areas containing dangerous equipment or medicines and grant access to areas where escorting patients in wheelchairs / beds or carrying sterile equipment is important.
Nedap’s uPASS Access UHF readers’ offer hands-free building access opening doors at a distance of up to 2 metres whereas their uPASS Reach readers offers long-range vehicle identification opening barriers to authorised vehicles at up to 4 metres without the need for the driver to present a card or badge.
When combined together you create a total hands-free environment, allowing secure but traceable freedom of movement from your staff car park right through to a ward or an operating theatre.
There is no doubt that Nortech’s hands-free access control systems can improve the running of a Hospital establishment, read our solutions page for more details or call us.
With evolving cyber threats facing the NHS and other healthcare organisations, addressing cyber security must be a priority for all organisations handling patient records and sensitive data.
