Creating Safer Hospitals

Radiocoms Systems

Ensure your hospital is resilient and can adapt to a wide spectrum of emergencies and operational disruptions. Explore a unified ecosystem combining voice, software, video and services, designed to help hospitals maintain a safe and healthy environment.

In unprecedented times like these, the demand for healthcare services is ever increasing. Patients have ever-growing expectations about the safety and quality of healthcare services, whilst staff are dealing with more complex situations. With numerous secure areas that contain sensitive and critical inventory and patients’ hospitals must ensure these areas are constantly secured and monitored to prevent unauthorised access and theft, incidents, or perimeter breaches, for example.

How can Motorola Solutions products & solutions support safer hospital measures?

Since the pandemic hit the UK there have been various news articles published by the UK media reporting on crime within the NHS. For example, the BBC and the Independent have both reported on cases of theft of PPE, oxygen, hand sanitiser to food donations.

A large majority of hospitals already operate one, or more of Motorola Solutions technologies. This could be CCTV, two way radio, body worn cameras or smartphone solutions. By bringing these technologies together to create an interoperable, robust system a healthcare facility can quickly and securely share information enabling clinical and non-clinical teams to take swift action.

Motorola Solutions’ four point ecosystem not only improves safety, but can boost morale, increase productivity, and reduce downtime.

1. Detect
Securing your premises takes time and staff hours. From controlling multiple points of entry, monitoring staff, patient, and visitor movements, and securing and monitoring sensitive areas, detection plays a critical role in improving situational awareness and decreasing response times to potentialthreats and operational problems. Integrated video security using AI can create high visibility across your facility to support an action required. Push notifications to devices will ensure all personnel – across multiple teams – are informed of critical information simultaneously.

2. Analyse
Identifying unwanted individuals, tracking persons of interest, and recognising hazardous situations in this environment is a demanding.  Appearance searches quickly and seamlessly explore video footage to record where a particular individual has been before and after a particular point in time. Integrated access control and badging provide real-time insights into personnel movements throughout the facility. Ultimately, these solutions and insights are crucial to cutting through the noise, locating points of interest and recognising which events are important – so you can make an informed decision to take action.

3. Communicate
Whether you are a security officer with an aggravated patient or an administrator dealing with an emergency, such as a perimeter breach, clear and timely communication is key to keeping your teams connected and informed. Two-way radio communications instantly and reliably connect security, administration, caregivers, staff and local first responders. Broadband push-to-x extends your reach by enabling voice and data information to be shared across devices.

4. Respond
Whether it is an everyday incident or an emergency situation, healthcare institutions need to communicate with each other to coordinate a response in the most efficient way possible. Being ready and aware is critical to ensuring your team can quickly respond to problems before they escalate. Dynamic interoperability makes it easy to directly share data with first responders in real-time, enhancing situational awareness. Incident management streamlines the logging of incident reports and makes it easy to share multimedia with other personnel.
