World class access for patients, staff and visitors in healthcare environments

In a healthcare environment, limiting and monitoring access to certain areas at certain times of day is key to providing safe and germ-free environments.

Providing access, security and high-quality medical services simultaneously requires intelligent, discreet and effective security and building management solutions, which must be flexible to meet the diverse needs of patients, medical personnel and the visiting public.

While elbow switches and antimicrobial door handles help preventing the spread of infections in surgical theatres and patient areas, access control systems and escape routes solutions to provide the necessary levels of security throughout the premises.

Main areas where ASSA ABLOY can offer an integrated solution:

Main Entrances - The main door of a hospital or clinic should be able to absorb high levels of traffic, regulate temperature, enable handicap access and facilitate exit during an emergency. Automation is the best answer for meeting these requirements.
Emergency Exits - Emergency exits must comply with regulations and ensure safe exit during extreme situations while also helping to secure the building. Intelligent panic exits, for example, protect people and property during emergencies and all other times.
Surgical Units - In a continuous fight against microbes, it is essential that surgeons’ hands do not come in contact with handles or doors before operation. Using automatic doors with sensors or elbow switches are just some of the ways to meet these challenges.
Patients' Rooms - Patients’ rooms experience a lot of traffic from visitors, doctors and nurses. Limiting the spread of microbes though door handles with anti-microbial treatment is one way to help fight common, hospital-born diseases.
