First in industry to go beyond nurse-to-nurse training and create more
encompassing, ongoing program
BROOKFIELD, Wis., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Technologies(R), a leading provider of radio frequency identification monitoring systems and healthcare monitoring solutions, announces it has enhanced its comprehensive clinical support program associated with its Safe Place(R) Infant Security Solution and labeled it Step-by-Step(R). The clinical education and accompanying support kit provide guidance and resources to ensure a successful infant security program. RF Technologies was the first to offer clinical nurse-to-nurse training on an infant security system, and continues to pioneer new avenues for reaching its entire client base. RF Technologies will be at the Association of Women's Health Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) Convention in Los Angeles, June 21-24, booth number 441, to discuss how hospitals can utilize this program.
"We believe the key to an effective technology-based program is a highly trained nursing staff," said Leslie Roste, Clinical Product and Education Director at RF Technologies. "Our product and clinical support program were developed by engineers working directly with RF Technologies' nurses, always keeping clinicians in mind, so we're able to bring the unique knowledge needed for infant security. We've expanded our program to continue to carry-out our mission of going beyond simply offering products -- we're also providing effective solutions that enable our customers to succeed."
Step-by-Step offers on-site and web-based training, in addition to on-going support after installation, including clinical assessments conducted on-site which are particularly useful for facilities with ongoing issues, high staff turnover and high volume usage. The assessments can also be done via VPN connection. Step-by-Step provides abduction drills with optional evaluation. The innovative program also supplies an educational kit, which consists of tools, forms and other resources essential for properly training existing and new staff members.
Further maximizing the value Safe Place provides, elements of the Step-by-Step program are tailored to the individual needs of each facility including software configuration. It also provides a template to assist a facility in developing a policy that incorporates electronic monitoring of its patients. Sample policies as well as a review of a facility's policies and recommendations are included in the program.
"We actually work with the hospital to develop protocols for various situations, such as when an attempted, infant abduction occurs. We truly partner with the customer," said Roste.
