Hospital security and safety managers are challenged with meeting complex security, safety and incident related processes and procedures. Compliance to Joint Commission – Environment of Care Standards (EC) is imperative.
The Joint Commission considers these facilities “defend in place” operations so critical that security, life safety and process inspections include “elements of performance” that are reviewed during audits. Healthcare facilities are required to clearly display consistent patterns of inspection compliance, documentation and deficiency correction.
FlexPatrol™ Hospital Security & Safety provides a powerful mobile data collection solution for administrators seeking to manage and automate their fire life safety elements of performance including effective corrective action documentation of deficiencies.
FlexPatrol™ Hospital Security & Safety is a powerful PDA based mobile software tool for security, fire life safety and facility managers for automating mobile inspections, tours and incident reporting. With optional bundles these modules can be combined together in one easy to implement paperless data collection system.
FlexFlexPatrol is designed for reliable mobile use in the field utilizing ruggedized hand held Intermec PDA’s with imbedded barcode scanners to collect data. User defined locations or assets with bar codes are read using the mobile PDA’s to validate location and prompt question sets for complex or simple inspections.
