Description

CLB’s Acoustic Monitoring non-intrusively listens to sleeping residents and triggers an alert when the sound level in a room exceeds individually set thresholds. This enables staff to swiftly respond to residents in need of care. Continuous monitoring replaces routine in-room checks, so peacefully sleeping residents are not disturbed and staff are free to focus on those whose distress has triggered an alert. 

Respecting Privacy

Respecting residents’ privacy is of utmost importance. For this reason, appropriate usage procedures are to be established and adhered to. In-room indicators (visual and/or audio) can be used to let residents know when they are being monitored. When explained correctly to them, clients and their peers welcome the use of this system as the residents are no longer needlessly disturbed during the night.

Typical user scenario

Local staff activate acoustic monitoring as they come on shift at night and deactivate it in the morning. Monitoring can be activated per ward or individually per patient. Alert calls are made via standard routes to mobile handsets, such as Dect phones or GSM/smartphones, or can be viewed on screens per ward or over multiple wards. Staff are able to listen in and talk into the relevant room via the mobile handsets and the monitor screens. If required, the system is also used during the day to provide more intensive monitoring of patients with special needs.
