Protect your care residents and visitors as the lockdown is gradually lifted in Dorset
How has your care home or supported housing been coping?
Making sure your residents, staff and visitors are safe throughout the COVID-19 lockdown is of paramount importance. And with all the preventative techniques in washing hands, sanitising the surfaces and reducing visiting preferences it just isn’t enough to stop the spread effectively.
How taxing has this been on your key workers? Extra staff managing entrances at risk, in close contact with the public, and the feeling of unease that your care home, sheltered house or assisted living accommodation is a breeding ground for the virus.
According to the NHS, the main symptoms of coronavirus are a high temperature and a new, continuous cough. But the problem with high temperature (or fever as it’s medically known) is that this can go unnoticed and untreated by the individual as it doesn’t present as ‘cold or flu-like’ symptoms.
Protect your staff and the public with thermal detection
The safety of your care home staff, volunteers, residents and their visitors to keep Dorset and Hampshire going is of top priority for us here at Unique. And we understand the financial risk that COVID-19 poses to sheltered accommodation if the spread affects your workforce, operations or perpetuates the spread of the virus. Let us help you get your care home back operating safely.
During this difficult time and situation for care homes, we see automatic temperature screening systems (that uses new AI thermal imaging camera technology) as the only solution to enable you to mitigate risk of coronavirus spread and reassure your key workers that you can operate safely. There are a number of ways that you can integrate this system for your home, but across the board, the main benefits to installing thermal imaging systems for your Dorset or Hampshire based supported housing are:
- Allows healthcare workers to scan visitors of people as they walk by
- Displays and detects critical body temperature elevations in real time.
- Alerts authorities when identified individuals with raised temperatures.
- Protects workforce health by screening for fevers caused by viruses.
Ultimately, one of these systems will enable your business to reopen safely, sooner.
How will temperature screening work in your business?
There are a number of temperature screening systems we can install across Dorset and Hampshire here at Unique. The most effective is a simple thermal imaging camera with the new COVID-19 technology that ‘screens’ key workers and alerts management staff if there is a high body temperature recorded (specific to the head) so they can safely deal with the person.
- Less than 1 second to detect skin-surface temperature.
Minimal queuing by your visitors waiting to get into your care home which reduces the staff costs and safety of managing queues with no contact.
- Simultaneous multi-person detection within crowds.
With its impressive detection speed, there is no need to create single file lines for people to queue (which would need to monitored) simply use one security staff member to manage the screen.
- Requires no physical contact to test for a high fever.
Reduce the risk of your care workers contracting coronavirus by not exposing them closely to long lines of crowded people as the thermal imaging system manages this for you. No physical contact tests.
- Audible alarm notifies security operators or sends message.
Quick and effective notifications that will alert security or management staff and authorities of a high temperature on an individual so they can be dealt with appropriately.
- Smart technology ignores other heat sources to reduce false alarms.
This new artificial intelligence software is clever enough to ignore other heat sources that wouldn’t constitute a high temperature within a person. This has been acknowledged by medical boards globally.
Here is a real-time demonstration of the thermal imaging camera in action within the entrance / exit of your business premises. Notice how quick and effective the temperature detection is focusing on the person’s forehead as they walk into work.
