Caring for a loved one can be a difficult job, even when they are in a care home. Eyes are not always watching, allowing for wanderings and potential accidents to occur. Patients suffering from dementia or other memory problems may become disorientated and lost if they are able to wander off. This is not the reputation a care home wishes to develop but staff cannot be everywhere at all times.
The Rondish Bed Leaving Mat Alarm for the Nurse Call Kit helps to prevent this reputation. Designed to be used with either a pager or integrated into a nurse call system, it alerts staff to any wanderings and enables them to react before the problem develops.
Features of the Rondish Bed Mat Alarm
The Rondish Bed Mat Alarm is an ideal way of keeping track of when a patient gets out of bed. Positioned horizontally across the bed behind the shoulders, the alarm is set when weight is placed on it. This way, when a patient sits up, the contact is broken and an alarm sounds, either through the pager or the nurse call system. Staff can then reach the patient before they have the chance to get out of bed.
The bed mat is manufactured by a high quality polyvinyl, ensuring excellent durability and the ability to wipe clean the sensors if required.
A 2m lead is fitted for connection with the monitor or to plug into the nurse call system.
The bed Mat mat has the following measurements: 30" x 20".
A normal strength disinfectant can be used on the mat for hygiene purposes.
