Since December 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread globally at a rapid speed. Until now, it is still a tremendous threatening factor for public safety and society, with hundreds of thousands of people being confirmed the contagious diagnosis on a global basis every day. These patients need to be isolated in isolation wards respectively. Under this circumstance, Milesight smart button allows these patients to alert a nursing staff remotely of their need for help.Challenge
- Ease workloads of nursing staff
Nurses used to go from ward to ward to find out whether patients need help. As the number of confirmed patients goes through the roof, they can no longer allocate so much energy and time to do this repetitive work.
- Improve patient safety by alerts whenever they need help
Confirmed patients are stuck in isolation wards, regardless of their symptoms are serious or subtle, whereas nurses cannot squeeze a little time to keep an eye on them.
- Reduce costs of purchasing new devices
As COVID-19 ravages all around the world, more isolation wards need to be established. In contrast, those isolation wards where confirmed patients all recover need to be tear down or rescheduled. Hence, most of the original devices suitable for addressing COVID-19 will be subjected to abandonment.
Linovision IOT-S500BT is a LoRaWAN®-based smart button for wireless controls, triggers and alarms. It supports multiple press actions, all of which can be defined by the user to control devices or trigger scenes. It is remarkable that Linovision also provides a red button that is primarily used to send SOS alarms, while a white one is used for general scenarios. Compact and battery-powered, IOT-S500BT is easy to install. Besides, it can be carried everywhere with a lanyard.
In hospitals or specific isolation places, every isolation ward is equipped with one smart button, that is, every isolated patient can get help if required. With easy configuration, if the alert of smart button is triggered by pressing it, which means patients need help, the signal can be transmitted by Linovision LoRaWAN® gateways to a cloud platform such as Linovision IoT Cloud. Accordingly, nursing staff can find out who and where the patients needs help and provide care required in a much more efficient way.
- Avoid repetitive work
With the increasing number of confirmed patients, Milesight smart button allows nursing staff to avoid repetitive patrol of usually going from ward to ward, so they can put left time and energy to more patients.
- Swift response , no matter where and when
Anything can happen in an isolation ward. Milesight smart button ensures that the nurses receive alerts of help from patients in time, or saving their lives.
- Reusable devices
Linovision smart buttons are movable and can be re-deployed in other isolation wards, which save much cost.
