Patient dignity is often compromised on a daily basis while in care. This unfortunate healthcare industry reality is what inspired us to question current processes and technologies. We believe it is time to challenge status quo to ensure that all patients in a healthcare setting can live the most dignified life possible while in care. We have run focus group studies with nurses, care aides, and various health care practitioners who have all echoed that patient dignity is their #1 priority.
It’s the smile on an elders face when a big, bulky wandering device is taken off of their wrists or necks and is replaced with a weightless, tiny wander management tag.
It’s all the extra time our mobile devices give to nurses, care aides, and health practitioners so their patients never miss their bathing and hygiene opportunities.
It’s the look on a patient’s face after having a good night sleep. A restful night free of false alarms, frequent checks for bed wetting, and simply knowing they are in safe hands.
The list goes on….
Patients with more dignity, have a better quality of care, therefore yielding a better quality of life.
