GAO RFID System Solutions: Care Facilities for the Physically Handicapped or Disabled

Operating a Physically Handicapped or Disabled Care Facility and tracking individual patients and staff is made possible with the inclusion of an RFID system. Caregivers can take advantage of the GAO RFID System by using it to track and locate equipment, patients, and documents throughout their healthcare facility.

Inventory Management

Linens, personal laundry services, bedding, walking aides and medication to be administered can all be monitored by tagging them with RFID Laundry Tags and using the GAO RFID Asset Tracking System. Checking inventory levels for equipment ordered and tracking items that are under warranty or are in the process of being repaired is convenient using our RFID tracking and monitoring technology.

Equipment Management

Adjustable height accessible exam tables, patient lifts, portable floor lifts, assisted transfer ceiling mounted overhead track lifts, free standing overhead lifts, stretchers, gurneys and radiological equipment can all be tracked. Our RFID Asset Tracking System automates the equipment tracking and maintenance schedule monitoring process seamlessly, ensuring that all equipment in your facility is in good working order and ready to be used by patients.

Document Management

Patient report forms completed by health care workers provide detailed files regarding patients currently residing or newly admitted to your care facility. Periodically documents can be subjected to clinical audits to promote a higher standard of care for patients. Automate the management of these forms and any other related documents to ensure all paperwork is completed accurately using our RFID Asset Tracking System for Healthcare.

Patient Tracking

Regular out patients who frequently come and go from care facilities can be tagged with wrist bracelets. Patients can be given RFID Wristbands and are tracked and located anywhere on the care facilities grounds using our RFID Personnel/Patient Tracking System after they have been admitted. This creates full visibility of patient location, especially those in need of special attention, care, and prone to wandering. Additionally, it reduces the already taxed workflow of nurses and other staff.
