Occasionally, items get lost in resident rooms and other areas of a nursing home and don't immediately pass through a checkpoint. Smaller items - such as dentures and hearing aids - can get rolled up in bed sheets
or left in clothing or wheelchair pockets, and it may be days before they pass through a checkpoint. Items forgotten in nightstands or dressers may never make it to a checkpoint.
For these situations, Scandent has a mobile handheld scanner that can be carried from room to room. You can use it to find items misplaced in bed sheets, clothing, dressers, and trash bins.
When the handheld detects a tagged item, it will buzz, and email alerts will be sent to designated staff. The handheld is light, wireless, and rechargeable.
The handheld scanner can be programmed to search for a specific item - for example, a certain resident's left hearing aid, lower denture, or cell phone. This capability is especially useful when there are numerous tagged
items in a room. Further, because the handheld scanner has a smaller field of detection than the checkpoints, the handheld can pinpoint the exact location of a missing item within a room.
