Hospitals are busy places with patients, staff, and visitors coming and going at all hours, making safety a top priority. This hospital has a staff of 1,300 employees and physicians, providing acute, emergency, inpatient, outpatient, and crisis response services to thousands of patients each year.
Slip and falls are a common concern across all areas of the hospital, but especially for patients in the Behavioral Health Unit who can’t wear shoes. As part of a patient improvement initiative, the hospital turned to IntelliSee for help decreasing the number of slip and falls on this floor.
IntelliSee’s risk mitigation platform was installed on existing cameras in priority areas, including the Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit, emergency department entrances, and crisis hallway. With hundreds of cameras in place across the hospital, it’s impossible for each feed to be manually and simultaneously monitored.
However, IntelliSee autonomously scans for a range of threats without getting bored or losing focus, allowing the hospital to turn its existing security cameras into proactive risk mitigation tools. With IntelliSee monitoring the cameras, hospital security can function more efficiently and better prepare for response.
