CarePlus™ RTLS Solutions is expanding with the exciting release of CarePlus™ Mobile Resident Call

The RTLS product line is growing again with the development of the new aged care application, CarePlus™ Mobile Resident Call. Mobile Resident Call is another innovative, clinical-grade RTLS (Real-Time Location System) solution providing residents with the opportunity to page staff for assistance, thus offering healthcare professionals greater care opportunities. Expanding the CarePlus™ Technology Suite acknowledges the emergent need within the aged care industry for quality safety solutions, delivering the fundamental support understaffed facilities require.

Unobtrusive, easy-to-use call devices – attached via a lanyard – are given to residents to alert Nursing staff immediately when residents are ready to leave one area of a facility for another, or to simply signal for assistance. RTLS dual active technology RF (Radio Frequency) and IR (Infra-Red) ensures precise room locations are detected, providing residents with a sense of empowerment as staff are no longer required to wait around with individuals in communal areas, indoors or outdoors. Integration is as simple as a stand-alone system or a complete Nurse Call solution.

Health Workforce Australia (HWA) estimates there will be a shortage of over 100,000 Nurses by 2025[1], which is a topic explored in numerous Australian Royal Commissions. By increasing resident’s freedom and independence, staff’s productivity and resources improves to guarantee all parties are satisfied with the most recent CarePlus™ aged care safety feature. Greater safety encourages peace-of-mind for staff, residents, and their families, as CarePlus™ understands the value of security to meet aged care requirements and exceed expectations.
