The Saxenhoj Psychiatric institution is located on the island of Lolland, Denmark. The institution spans multiple buildings and floors. It currently holds 300 psychiatric patients, 100 of whom live at the hospital.
Saxenhoj has been extended over the years and has a combination of old panic alarm systems throughout different buildings, a new fire alarm system from Siemens, and an old radio communication system.
Saxenhoj wanted to integrate these solutions into one platform, reducing the complexity and knowledge required to respond to emergency events. All employees at the institution required a personal, radio-based panic button, which could be also provide information as to the position of the employee both inside buildings and outside areas. Some rooms required room level positioning while others just needed positioning on the building level..
In addition to the staff panic alerting and positioning service, the new system should be able to handle patient calls from disabled patients’ rooms and be able to provide notifications about fire in the buildings..
