Nursing Home Bluetooth Positioning Management System Function


Elderly real-time Location Monitoring and Historical Activity Track Record Playback

By wearing Bluetooth bracelets or Bluetooth badges (card type ibeacon) for the elderly, and deploying Bluetooth gateways throughout the venue, the smart nursing platform of Weineng Information can locate and monitor the real-time location of the elderly in real time, providing help for nursing staff to find the elderly quickly and accurately . 

At the same time, in response to various emergencies that may occur, the intelligent nursing platform can replay the historical trajectory of the elderly's activities to help nursing homes deal with various emergencies.

Electric Fence

Through the electronic fence system to divide the various areas of the nursing home, the manager can obtain the division of the elderly into certain specific areas in real time, such as the nursing area and the activity area.

After the Bluetooth probe is fully covered in the nursing home, the out-of-bounds alarm function of the electronic fence can be used to monitor and warn the behavior of the elderly leaving the hospital. 

In addition, the safety of the elderly is ensured by setting a regular stay in a specific area. If the elderly stays in a specific area for a long time, an alarm will be triggered to remind the nursing staff to go and check in time. Based on the heart rate monitoring function of the Bluetooth bracelet, the nursing system can also actively alert the elderly to abnormal heart rate conditions.

Security Personnel Positioning and Dispatching Management

Weineng Information's intelligent nursing platform tracks the security personnel to check whether they are on duty, and timely manage the missing personnel to improve management efficiency. Through the smart nursing system, the manager can accurately obtain the security personnel information of the corresponding area. In the first time an accident occurs, relevant security personnel can be mobilized to deal with it, and security efficiency can be improved.

Medical Staff Positioning Management

Weineng Information's smart nursing platform tracks the location of nursing staff and checks daily work data in detail, including the service content in a day, the number of rooms viewed, the number of elderly people served, and the service time for each elderly person. Using digital statistical methods, it is reasonable to improve the supervision of maintenance personnel, thereby improving service quality and work efficiency.

Health Monitoring, Physical Signs Alarm and Emergency Call for Help

In order to facilitate management and use, Weineng Information's intelligent care platform can follow up various needs of nursing homes and make corresponding user management lists, such as heart rate, care level, and major illnesses.

At the same time, information such as the heart rate and location of the elderly is collected through the Bluetooth bracelet, which will be fed back to the background in real time. When various alarm situations or SOS call for help, it will be alerted in real time through the background.
