Lack of or inadequate security and the resulting hazards can cause great harm in care homes. A suitable security system in a nursing home is a great challenge, as it has to fulfil a multitude of complex requirements and legal regulations. This is because, in addition to the greatest possible security for patients, the preservation of privacy is also crucial, so that safe and individualised access to the patients' private rooms is guaranteed. Mentally ill residents in particular are at increased risk, as they may unknowingly enter dangerous areas or even leave the building. This requires a sophisticated security management that takes into account all aspects in the nursing home and at the same time does not restrict the privacy of the residents. Optimal security requires both the prevention of manipulated access and potential security breaches as well as the exact documentation of access rights and procedures. The solution is the intelligent access control system from primion. The prime WebAccess access control system from primion makes it possible to control all areas and people, while maintaining the privacy of the residents. Efficient access control provides a specific solution for care homes, guaranteeing maximum security and optimising operational processes.
How access control systems work in nursing homes
Security in nursing homes is of great importance due to the residents in need of assistance. An access control system must ensure the highest level of security and also take into account legal regulations, such as escape routes or data protection. Patients as well as staff have high expectations of an access control system, which should guarantee both the security and the personal rights of the individual. For nursing homes, theft and unauthorised access, among other things, pose potential risks.
In order to meet the specific requirements in a nursing home, the implementation of a reliable access control system is necessary. A modern access control system is used to monitor the relevant areas and to assign access rights to persons to all areas and premises such as private rooms, visitor areas or offices. With an access control system, access rights for persons and rooms are quickly managed so that unauthorised persons are denied access to certain areas. This is particularly relevant, among other things, for medication storage or access to personal patient data, in order to ensure patient safety and compliance with data protection regulations. Security can be additionally increased by securing the entire premises. Intelligent access control therefore not only enables the privacy of the occupants to be maintained, but also for greater security and efficiency.
