CarePlus™ Mobile Staff Duress Improves Staff Safety with RTLS technology at Bunbury Mental Health

CarePlus™ Mobile Staff Duress is now successfully installed at the Bunbury Mental Health Service, providing a fundamental RTLS safety solution for all staff members facing aggressive physical and/or verbal abuse.

Bunbury Mental Health needed a clinical grade, room accuracy safety solution for their staff members, particularly in closed and isolated rooms. Their previous system had a poor level of accuracy, leading to time wastage and a lack of efficiency in emergent situations concerning staff member’s welfare. CarePlus™ Mobile Staff Duress, through RTLS technology, detects the precise room location of any staff member activating duress to secure their location and send instant help by alerting third parties.

In 2018, Andrew Rothon, CEO of NiQ Health, reflected, “Mobile Staff Duress was developed to tackle and control the issue of threats of violence against staff in hospitals, mental health facilities, aged care homes, and emergency departments.” Today, technical expert John Sorensen from ELA, who has over ten years’ experience working with CarePlus™, agreed Mobile Staff Duress is a central healthcare feature. “Mobile Staff Duress is essential to protect psychiatric nurse practitioners. Bunbury has received a safety upgrade to advance its staff and patient protection in a timely and cost-effective solution.”

Mobile Staff Duress embodies the recommendations made by various state government reports to employ a protection solution for healthcare personnel in the workforce.
