RTLS & Staff Duress


It’s important for healthcare facilities to adopt a strategy that involves RTLS. TPC Systems will assist in evaluating which system best fits your needs based on a number of variables. There are multiple technologies that can be utilized to pinpoint the location of staff, patients, and devices. In an evolving world of IoT (Internet of Things) the use cases grow by the day. Our goal is to maximize the value of the infrastructure chosen for your facility while integrating with current systems across your spectrum of care and scaling the solution as it grows with your needs. Various use cases include but are not limited to:

  • Asset Management
  • Patient Locating
  • Staff Locating
  • Staff Duress
  • Contact Tracing
  • Hand Hygiene Compliance
  • Throughput Optimization

More on Staff Duress:

In the interest of protecting staff members, our Staff Duress solution is there to alert others when certain situations get out of control. Leveraging RTLS technology, we can trigger an immediate emergency response locating any specific employee’s location who is under duress.

Duress calls can be made discretely by staff without patients knowing, whether done through a wearable or wall-mounted device. Once the RTLS infrastructure is in place, it can be utilized for use cases such as asset management, call canceling automation through Nurse Call, patient throughput, hand hygiene compliance, and many others.

TPC will actively engage key personnel and executive leadership within your facility and perform a complete assessment to determine the best implementation strategy. We will maintain an active role to ensure that your RTLS system reaches its full potential and are available locally to help guide you through the entire process.
