In a two-year Return on Investment study, Trinitas examined the health records of employees using Staff Assist, comparing the data for the year prior to installing Versus RTLS to the same 12-month period after. Although Trinitas found an increase in the number of assaults, staff experienced a significant decrease in days lost from work.
"The use of this technology has no doubt increased the response rate of security staff and clinical staff when a code is called for a combative patient."
"Versus’ Staff Assist definitely has decreased staff injuries and increased morale."

"We never had the capability of knowing when a staff member was in trouble before we started wearing our personnel badges. Our staff take the alert very seriously when it occurs and quickly respond."
"The Versus system has been an unquestionable success with the staff… the ‘staff assist’ feature allows them to appear, like magic, when doctors need assistance or X-rays are needed."
Donald Bliss, MD, MPH, FRACS, FACS, FAAOS
Whether you need to protect staff against patient violence, or just offer the ability to call for assistance, Visibility™ Staff Assist can help.
When in need of assistance, staff simply press the button on their Versus Badge and a popup message is automatically displayed at the nurse’s station and/or security station, noting the staff member’s location.
The enhanced Staff Assist package also provides the ability to send a message via the facility’s paging system, to mobile phones, or to initiate a relay closure, such as triggering alarm lights.
A 2011 study conducted by the Emergency Nurse’s Association found:
Staff Assist is also used as a panic button by several Versus clients in Behavioral Health units.
Many of our clients use Staff Assist as a simple call for assistance, rather than a panic button. For example:
If you want your staff to have the peace of mind a mobile call button can provide, contact Versus for a demonstration.
