Focus on patients and people Security in the health care system.
The number of patients who require the best possible health care is growing. Access management and security is becoming increasingly important in hospitals, medical practices, laboratories, retirement homes and care facilities, where cost efficiency requirements also take priority. A digital locking system thus plays an important role in the health care system.
Focus on patients and people.
Security in the health care system.
Sensitive areas such as laboratories and operating theatres need to be protected particularly effectively. For example, medicines and narcotics may only be accessible to doctors and selected hospital staff. In addition, access to certain stations must be strictly regulated. At the same time, however, fluctuation in hospitals is very high - doctors in internships leave the clinic after just one year, for example, and nurses often change departments. In addition, strictly screened rooms must also be entered by cleaning and maintenance personnel on a regular basis.
Our electronic locking system therefore enables effective protection of selected areas on the one hand. However, it is also flexible enough to deal with frequent changes: A single click is all it takes - and the authorisations on a transponder are changed or even deleted. In addition, authorisations can also be assigned temporarily. For example, it is possible to determine the times at which the cleaning personnel are allowed to enter the operating theatres. In addition, the system can be extended as required. Drug cabinets, for example, can be effectively secured in this way.

Munich University Hospital:
Around 9,000 employees look after patients at the university hospital at its city centre and Grosshadern sites. The SimonsVoss System 3060 assists them in their work.
Preventative access control.
Munich University Hospital provides care for 90,000 in-patients and 400,000 outpatients every year. Its 28 clinics, nine institutes and six departments are spread over 280,000 square metres. Patients, visitors, employees, suppliers and service providers enter through the hospital doors almost twenty-four hours a day. Comprehensive protection of stocks, equipment, buildings and people poses a great challenge to management, but System 3060 provides a simple solution while keeping costs down.
One notable feature is the escape and fire doors fitted with a suitable special cylinder. Safety is absolutely assured if fire should ever break out thanks to the anti-panic cylinder: employees would be able to leave rooms, but no-one would be able to enter. Safety is also provided in high-security areas. In the Psychiatry Department, for example, suicide prevention locking cylinders have been installed. These cylinders feature conical thumb turns, which are designed to ensure no rope or cord can be attached.
Lübben Rehabilitation Centre:
an integral concept.
The Lübben Rehabilitation Centre is a specialised clinic with an extensive range of medical services. A wide variety of professionals provide care to different types of patient. Access management with the SimonsVoss System 3060 also plays its part in ensuring everyone's well-being at the centre.
The centre consists of a star-shaped building with an administrative wing, therapy units and residential sections with 230 rooms. System 3060 has now provided much-needed flexibility for access control. The system brings a further advantage: it is extremely scalable and can adapt to requirements. This is a huge help in an existing building such as a clinic with constantly varying requirements due to changes in the building or room rental to external parties.
Fire safety regulations do not allow any alterations to be made to the doors. This poses no problem for a SimonsVoss control system since it is quickly installed with no wiring whatsoever.
caring for children.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities children's foundation maintains 300 houses worldwide, one of which is in the Dutch city of Valkenburg. Digital Locking System 3060 with access control ensures that parents have a problem-free stay while visiting their children undergoing treatment in the adjacent rehabilitation centre.
Communal spaces, six cosy guest rooms for parents and eight apartments for family and friends ensure a successful family holiday. There are also up to 80 volunteers who look after both the adults and young guests. The main building and all guest rooms have been fitted with digital locking cylinders, making it easier to manage the constantly changing occupants securely. Guests access through the main entrance, but may only enter their own apartment or specific communal areas such as the library, living room or kitchen.
It is essential to log all accesses due to high occupant turnover, so all cylinders feature access event logging. A central computer can be used to determine which users have entered individual rooms at particular times. Thanks to SimonsVoss, families not only enjoy comfort, but also feel perfectly secure.
