Savings, Reliability, and Security
Once a nursing facility has installed Scandent for loss and theft prevention, that same framework of checkpoints can be used as a resident wandering system
without the need to spend more money on additional infrastructure. Scandent wristbands also last three times longer and are quarter of the cost of
other commercially-available wristbands.
Scandent wristbands, along with other commercially-available wristbands, are highly reliable. But when it comes to resident wandering and elopement,
that is not always good enough. Scandent's RFID tags for clothing, shoes, wallets, cell phones, walkers, glasses, and other personal items can
be programmed to trigger wandering alarms and alerts. These multiple layers of redundancy serve to further reduce elopement risk and offer caregivers
peace of mind.
Because Scandent's software is web-based, Scandent has the ability to alert staff who are not in the immediate vicinity of the checkpoint of an
imminent elopement risk. Scandent does this through a combination of automated voice messages, text messages, and emails that are sent to
designated staff members.
