Improve Staff Safety

Abraham Maslow’s famous hierarchy of needs puts safety nearly at the base of the pyramid, just above basic physiologic needs such as food, sleep, and shelter. That’s because when a person faces real or perceived threats to safety, the desire to find safety will dominate behavioral motivation.

For care team members, physical safety includes having the right tools and protocols to eliminate unintended harm. It also means protection from physical assault. Wearable "panic buttons" that accelerate security response to unsafe situations are often the best solution for these hard-to-predict events.

The Vocera Communication Platform instantly and discreetly connects employees to security personnel, allowing security to assess the situation while they are on their way to help. Discover more about how we are increase safety, security and well-being.
