Health, wealth, and happiness
The loss of hearing aids, dentures, electronics, and medical equipment is an expensive problem in the nursing home world. Many nursing homes spend tens of thousands of dollars each year replacing lost
or stolen items, and often end up paying for replacements when the nursing home is not at fault. With Scandent, nursing homes can cut out replacement costs from their budgets, and recoup
the cost of the system in the first year of use alone.
Nursing home employees spend countless hours searching for lost items, resolving disputes with resident families, processing claims, obtaining replacements, and administering special care
to residents that have lost dentures and other critical items. With Scandent, there is no more dumpster diving, angry voicemails, or puree diets.
For residents, the complications that result from losing essential items are very painful. Losing glasses and hearing aids causes difficulty with hearing, seeing, and basic communication.
Denture loss often leads to poor nutrition and weight loss, which can trigger more serious health problems. By eliminating item loss, Scandent helps improve resident health and quality of life.
