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.

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."

Lori Wise
Nurse Manager

"[Versus] has really helped our housekeepers’ willingness to even go over to mental health to complete their work. Housekeepers aren’t trained in de-escalation techniques, so by having the badge as their panic device, it has helped actually assimilate some of our other workforce into those more complex work areas. The badge has given them great peace of mind because now they can just press the panic button to let people know who they are and where they are."

"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.
