Light of Hearts Villa Deploys Wi-Fi Emergency Call Solution from STANLEY Healthcare
WALTHAM, Mass., December 4, 2013 — STANLEY Healthcare, a market leading provider of safety, security and operational efficiency solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that it has deployed its AeroScout® Wi-Fi Emergency Call Solution at Light of Hearts Villa, in Bedford, Ohio, near Cleveland.
The solution enables residents to call for assistance not only from any location within the multi-story building, but also in the extensive grounds that surround Light of Hearts Villa. Residents have been equipped with wireless AeroScout call pendants, which communicate over the community’s standard Wi-Fi access points to STANLEY Healthcare’s MobileView® enterprise software.
Light of Hearts Villa is the first senior living community in the state of Ohio to deploy this leading-edge solution. “We’re very proud to be at the forefront of using the latest technology to improve care for our residents,” says Elizabeth (Betty) Hickle, executive director of Light of Hearts Villa. “When we began looking for a replacement for our legacy wired nurse call system, we had several goals in mind. First and foremost, we wanted to increase safety for residents while outside their apartments, and reduce the number of audible alarms. In addition, we wanted to leverage our investment in Wi-Fi coverage throughout our facility, and we needed better data on response times and resident call patterns to further improve our performance and care levels. STANLEY Healthcare was the only vendor able to provide a solution that combined all these elements.”
Light of Hearts Villa is a co-sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati and the Sisters of Charity Health System. It offers 90 independent living and assisted living apartments, and is home to 78 residents. Funding for the AeroScout® Wi-Fi Emergency Call System was provided by the SC Ministry Foundation, The Eva L. and Joseph M. Bruening Foundation, and the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.
“We are very pleased to be working with Light of Hearts Villa to improve the quality of life for their residents,” says Diane Hosson, director of security solutions at STANLEY Healthcare. “It is always inspiring to work with forward-thinking organizations, and help them realize person-centered care while measuring and improving their performance.”
The AeroScout solution is part of an integrated RTLS platform for safety, security and operational efficiency. In addition to emergency call, the platform supports environmental monitoring, hand hygiene compliance monitoring, asset management and staff workflow.
