Samarion(SM) to Demonstrate Unprecedented Fall Prevention Component of Enterprise Quality Improvement System for LTC Facilities at the AAHSA 2008 Annual Meeting & Exposition
Date:9/16/2008

Samarion CEO and CAST Commissioner Mark Rodgers Slated as Featured Panelist

for 'Falls and Technology' Education Session

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Stop Falls Now! That is not just a worthwhile message or future goal that Samarion brings to the AAHSA 2008 Annual Meeting and Exposition, but is now a reality. For the first time, Samarion will present live demonstrations of its unprecedented fall prevention system at this show.

Beyond slogans or theory, LTC providers will be able to see firsthand how the SamarionSolution will equip them to significantly prevent unassisted bed exit falls. Falls represent the No. 1 cause of serious accidental injury and deaths in elder home care and LTC facilities. Unlike any other fall management device or notification system, Samarion's restraint-free fall prevention component provides caregivers with the ability to intervene with residents before harmful falls occur. With the SamarionSolution, residents and their families will have an unparalleled level of safety, security and peace of mind.

"The statistics of nursing home falls is staggering," said Samarion Chief Executive Officer Mark E. Rodgers. "While the statistics are overwhelming, we have to remember that behind the numbers are wonderful seniors who deserve the safety and security that technology can now provide. Although we cannot possibly stop every fall, the value of saving one fall is beyond measure. We look forward to working with compassionate caregivers in reversing the fall trend and dramatically improving the quality of life for the millions of seniors in long term care," continued Rodgers.

The SamarionSolution is reliable, easy-to-use transformational technology providing restraint-free fall prevention; unsafe wandering and elopement prevention; abuse and neglect prevention; staff management and facility monitoring; and a family-and-friends communications system that greatly improves the quality of the lives of nursing home residents and their loved ones.

To experience the SamarionSolution first hand, please visit Samarion Booth #1529. Our team of experts, along with owners and administrators of nursing homes with initial implementations of SamarionSolution, will be on hand to answer questions, demonstrate the system, sign up customers, and schedule installations.

Rodgers, also a CAST Commissioner, will be a featured panelist for the "Falls and Technology" education session, to be held on Sunday, Oct. 12, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Samarion, a privately-held corporation dedicated to improving the quality of elder care, was recently recognized as an "Emerging High-Growth Company to Watch."

Samarion CEO Mark Rodgers will be available for interviews during the Oct. 12-15 show by phone or in person at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pa.
