Applying RFID to Physically Handicapped or Disabled Care Facilities

  • Sight impaired
  • Hearing impaired
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Mental retardation, developmental delays i.e. Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Emotional issues

Disability in the physical domain

  • Use of a wheelchair, cane, crutches or a walking device
  • Difficulty walking
  • Arthritis or rheumatism
  • Back and spine problems
  • Difficulties getting out of bed
  • Spinal cord injury

By applying our RFID experience, we may be able to design RFID solutions for Physically Handicapped or Disabled Care Facilities and help these facilities deal with the following issues, including:

  • Recording and tracking physically handicapped and disabled patients
  • Tracking personal possessions of care residents
  • Automatic schedule reminders
  • Regulating medication dispersal

Working with us to customize an RFID solution may result in a streamlined care process ensuring efficient day-to-day operations to provide accelerated patient care.

RFID For Care Facilities for the Physically Handicapped or Disabled

Operating a Physically Handicapped or Disabled Care Facility and tracking individual patients and staff may be 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 may all be monitored by tagging them with RFID Laundry Tags and using the GAO RFID Asset Tracking System.  Together with you, we can explore how RFID can be used to help check inventory levels for equipment ordered and track items that are under warranty or are in the process of being repaired. 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 we can explore how it can be applied to equipment in a hospital setting. 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. By exploring RFID technology, we can develop ways to automate the management of these forms and any other related documents to ensure all paperwork is completed accurately. 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. Through customizing a system that fits your needs,  full visibility of patient location, especially those in need of special attention, care, and prone to wandering may be possible.

Integrating our solution with your healthcare system

Once we have successfully worked together to create an RFID solution for your healthcare facility, our team of professionals will use our hardware and system integration expertise to integrate the GAO RFID Solution with your facilities server. Contact us for more information on how we can explore RFID solutions together and work towards increasing the patient care level at your care facility for the physically handicapped or disabled.
