TriTech prevents infant abduction
and patient elopement

Hospitals, birthing centers, and residential care facilities provide care for the most vulnerable members of our communities. Some of these patients, including newborns and those suffering from dementia, need more than medical support – they need security systems to ensure they stay safe and protected within the facility.

TriTech offers security systems that are specially designed for these purposes, and can help you evaluate your options, make the best choice for your particular circumstances, and get you up and running with this important capability.

Prevent Newborn Abduction

Well-managed hospitals and birthing centers put a high priority on protecting infants in their care from the threat of abduction. Unfortunately, it can only take seconds for someone to pick up a newborn and head for the door.

Hospitals and birthing centers need an advanced security solution that will:

  • Complement policies and procedures to form a robust security program
  • Be comfortable and effective on every baby
  • Be immune to false alarms
  • Have minimal administrative requirements and complexity
  • Instantly lock doors and/or sound an alarm when a baby is not cleared to exit
  • Integrate with other security systems, including video surveillance
  • Remain active even in the case of a power outage

Prevent Patient Elopement

Senior care facilities, Alzheimer’s care facilities, and other treatment, care, and residential facilities that cater to dementia and memory-loss patients have special challenges. Providing an open, independent environment for patient interaction remains important, but the facility cannot risk losing track of patient or resident locations or risk the chance of elopement or leaving a facility without authorization.

Organizations that care for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients need an advanced security solution that will:

  • Complement policies and procedures to form a robust security program
  • Be comfortable and effective on people of all ages and sizes
  • Be resistant to false alarms
  • Have minimal administrative requirements and complexity
  • Instantly lock doors and/or sound an alarm when someone in care breaches their allowed perimeter
  • Integrate with other security systems, including video surveillance
  • Remain active even in the case of a power outage
