Laguna Honda Hospital Implements InformaCast 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 to integrate with its Stanley Healthcare RFID tag system to track patient location, warn patients and staff when patients wandered out of a designated area and trigger prerecorded messages. Those broadcast are sent to a set of recipients (i.e. patients and staff ), notifying them that a patient has wandered out of a designated area.
