The safety and health of patients are the most important criteria for hospitals and healthcare facilities for elderly people. Many people in these institutions suffer from conditions such as Alzheimer's, dementia, and other disorders that put them at risk of wandering. They can leave their room at any time, end up on the street and find themselves in a dangerous and possibly life-threatening predicament. Statistically speaking, six out of 10 people with dementia have wandered at least once, which is a big concern for both their loved ones and the medical staff.

So, how can we ensure the safety of elderly patients and eliminate the risks of them leaving the clinic? The solution is a wander management system, which allows you to control the movements and track the routes of a patient in real time. At Navigine, we are developing a patient wandering system and are ready to provide tools for implementing the platform into the hospital infrastructure.

Keeping elderly patients safe
Introducing wander guard systems helps monitor the movement of patients and prevent them from leaving the clinic. Patients are given a sense of freedom, but the medical staff can always keep up with their location through the web interface, and, if necessary, help them return to their room.
Increasing the satisfaction of patients and their families
Thanks to wander management, the patient's loved ones don’t have to worry about the safety of their family member. They no longer have to stress about them getting lost or ending up in a dangerous situation, as now they are in a protected and safe environment. This increases customer satisfaction and makes them more loyal to the medical facility.
Receive real-time notifications
The wander management system provides medical staff with instant notifications in case of emergencies. If a patient leaves the territory of the hospital, loses or removes their bracelet with a label, or doesn’t return to their room after a certain time, the system immediately sends a notification to the staff.
Reduce staff time searching for wandering patients
The patient wandering alert system helps staff manage their time efficiently. Thanks to wander management, employees can find a missing person in a matter of minutes. This increases the overall productivity of the clinic and allows employees to focus on their daily activities.
