To guarantee the safety of patients, staff and visitors, UZ Leuven uses the services of its own security company, which is on call 24/7. UZ Leuven was looking for a new communication system that would guarantee flawless communication between the security officers. It opted for the NEXEDGE system with a repeater, which covers the entire hospital complex.
Everyone within reach at the push of a button
“We highly value the safety of our patients, employees and visitors. To manage hospital crime, our internal security officers use two-way radios from Flash,” explains Marc Deneyer, who is responsible for the internal security service.
Deneyer: “We work closely with our internal prevention service, which is the first to respond in an emergency. If an emergency occurs, we want to evacuate everyone and bring them to safety as soon as possible. At such a time, it is critical that we can give the proper instructions at the push of a button to the entire team. To coordinate this, we have a ‘coordination and command structure’. All involved must be able to communicate in order to be able to closely follow the situation and quickly give the correct orders. Here, too, the two-way radios prove their worth.”
It is always our goal to add value for our customers. We guarantee UZ Leuven fast access and with that, optimal safety.
An alarm or urgency message cannot be put off. Thanks to the voice and data communication solutions of Flash, you can be confident that the right message will reach the right person at the right time, enabling immediate follow-up.
Because today’s security threats are increasingly sophisticated, you not only need the certainty of a watertight system that secures sensitive information, but you want to achieve the highest level of safety for your employees.
