Comprehensive theft and loss prevention
The loss of hearing aids, dentures, and medical equipment, and theft of electronics and other valuables are frequent, painful, and expensive problems for nursing homes. The loss of hearing aids, dentures and glasses
adversely affects resident health and quality of life. Lost hearing aids and dentures incur high replacement costs for nursing homes, ruin relationships with resident families, and
invite unwanted scrutiny from the Department of Health.
Scandent eliminates loss and theft by attaching small RFID tags to various items and assets, installing RFID readers in areas through which lost or stolen items are likely
to pass, and providing mobile, handheld scanners for on-demand searching. When an item is detected, Scandent alerts staff through a customizable combination of emails, texts, and phone calls.
By eliminating loss and theft, nursing homes can save thousands of dollars spent on replacement costs each year. Scandent also eliminates the countless hours of staff time spent searching for lost items, resolving disputes with resident
families, and administering special care to residents. Most importantly, Scandent helps improve standard of care, resident health, and quality of life.
