Staff Assist

Visibility Staff Assist

Mobile Call Button for Nurse & Staff Safety

Healthcare is one of the most rewarding industries to work in; unfortunately it also leads in reported cases of workplace violence. Give nurses and other staff the ability to call for help — anytime, anyplace.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center

Joint Commission Leading Practice

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."

Hospital-wide Case Study

"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."

Surgery Center Case Study

"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."

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.

Mobile Panic Button Improves Nurse & Staff Safety

A 2011 study conducted by the Emergency Nurse’s Association found:

  • 13% of ED nurses experienced physical violence in past 7 days
  • 98% of assaults were perpetrated by patients
  • 74% of nurses say their hospital offered no response
  • Physical violence rates were lower in EDs with panic buttons

Staff Assist is also used as a panic button by several Versus clients in Behavioral Health units.

Assistance Button Improves Patient Safety & Satisfaction

Many of our clients use Staff Assist as a simple call for assistance, rather than a panic button. For example:

  • If a nurse needs help lifting a patient, she can call for assistance without leaving the patient
  • If a physician needs information or equipment while attending to a patient, she can call a nurse while maintaining focus on the patient

If you want your staff to have the peace of mind a mobile call button can provide, contact Versus for a demonstration.
