Improve Staff Safety

One in four nurses has been assaulted, and at least 58 hospital workers died between 2011 and 2016 as a result of what National Nurses United calls an epidemic of violence.

As part of a multidisciplinary approach to violence prevention, healthcare workers must have the ability to summon help in a moment of threat.

Vocera has developed wearable communication technologies that enable a caregiver to use voice commands to call for help instantly, or to discretely press a panic button to summon support without alerting the perpetrator who is escalating toward violence.

Discover more about how we are helping to improve safety, security, and well-being for healthcare workers.
