Team members at Duke HomeCare & Hospice now receive extra support in the field, thanks to a wireless panic button attached to their badge.
“The SoloProtect device is just one step we are taking to ensure we create a safe environment for team members,” said Lisa Tuttle, RN, CHPN, NE-BC, BS, MSN, Senior Associate Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Director of Clinical Operations at Duke HomeCare & Hospice. “It allows team members, who often work alone visiting patients in their homes, to have peace of mind that they have help if they need it.”
Roughly 185 Duke HomeCare & Hospice team members utilize the badge holder device powered by cellular technology that lets team members initiate a discreet "Red Alert.” If a situation warrants an immediate response, the monitoring center will promptly contact 911 on behalf of the team member, providing vital geo-location coordinates, and detailed information about the incident that triggered the alert.
It's a great comfort knowing that even though we work alone, we have direct access to fast, reliable, and competent help if needed.
