Laguna Honda Hospital Implements InformaCast Notification System for Patient Safety

 

 

Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center is a 780-bed, skilled nursing facility operated by the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The staff at Laguna Honda have been providing award-winning care to the diverse population of San Francisco since 1866.

 

Business Challenge:

Laguna Honda looks to provide excellent care and patient safety while operating on a budget. One of the toughest challenges is caring for patients with Alzheimer’s or dementia and being alerted if they wander from designated areas.

 

Solution:

Laguna Honda used InformaCast critical notification and alert software to integrate with its Stanley Healthcare RFID tag system to track patient location, warn patients and staff when patients wander out of a designated area and trigger prerecorded messages. An emergency notification is sent to a set of recipients (i.e. patients and staff), notifying them that a patient has wandered out of a designated area.
