The launch of these small portable transmitters that can be worn on a wrist, belt, or lanyard brings a new level of safety and security to health care workers across the globe. The transmitters are rechargeable and will run up to 4 weeks on a single charge. Battery operated transmitters are also available and can last up to 16 months.

Nurses, doctors, and patients can benefit from a Securalert security system. With this security technology, staff and patients can signal an emergency immediately. The Securalert duress button requires only one push to signal an emergency. The panic button offers 100% location accuracy.

The launch by Securalert of units that do not rely on the WiFi or the cloud brings a new standard of excellence to the world of personal alarms. Securalert’s system uses a hybrid technology of two simultaneous signals, an ultrasonic signal, and a radiofrequency signal. This dual system accurately transmits the distress signal to the main controller, pinpointing the location of the duress with precise accuracy. In hospitals and clinics with multiple rooms and multiple floors, this accuracy can reduce response time and increase the chances of a successful rescue.

Workplace violence in nursing and health care is a major concern. In 2010, there were approximately 11,370 assaults on health care and social assistance workers, according to OSHA. A 2014 study found that 76 percent of nurses reported experiencing violence within the past year, either from patients or from visitors.

The launch of these personal security devices is geared to bring peace of mind to doctors, nurses, staff, and patients in the high stress settings they often find themselves.
