Western Maryland Health System Expands Use of Versus RTLS to Enhance Staff Safety
Date:4/9/2013

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Maryland Health System (WMHS) has recently expanded use of its Real-time Locating System (RTLS) from Versus Technology, Inc. (Pink Sheets: VSTI.PK), using their existing sensory network to implement the Visibility™ Staff Assist solution. Deployed in WMHS' Behavioral Health Unit, Staff Assist provides a mobile, location-aware call button for caregivers.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey conducted 2005 to 2009, mental health occupations had one of the highest rates of workplace violence, second only to law enforcement.  A 2011 survey by the Emergency Nurses Association found panic buttons to be one of the only environmental measures associated with a lower rate of workplace violence in healthcare.

Because WMHS is committed to enhancing the safety of its staff, the hospital sought to improve safety protocols for behavioral health workers. They selected Versus' Staff Assist solution because it could easily be added to their existing RTLS network, says Jeffery D. O'Neal, LCPC, the systems director for WMHS' Behavioral and Occupational Health Services department.

WMHS, located in Cumberland, Md., has been using Versus' RTLS since 2009 for asset tracking, patient tracking and egress control. By leveraging the existing RTLS sensory network in the Behavioral Health Unit, implementation of Staff Assist involved only installing software and providing Versus Clearview™ Badges, equipped with call buttons, to staff members.

"We saw an opportunity to expand the Versus system using the same sensors," explains O'Neal. "B
