Enabling better observation

"One of the keys to patient wellness and safety in behavioral healthcare facilities is the ability for staff to observe patients throughout the space."

Enhancing the setting with light

"These systems contain a mixture of fixture types on separate controls for sitting areas as well as night lighting along the corridors, so that staff can lower lighting levels at night but still allow patients and staff clear wayfinding. This design creates a more residential-like environment with the ability to adjust lighting levels to correspond with different times of day."

Replacing the panic button

"We advise facilities to replace this static system with badges or fobs that the staff wear and can touch to set off an alarm or call for assistance when needed. "
