Reducing restrictive practices and empowering patients, our electronic lockset provides patient independence with built-in emergency access for staff in just 5 seconds - no toolkit required
Electronic locking gives patients independence by being able to lock and unlock their only private space.
Trust, free movement and privacy all contribute to patient recovery and completely contrast the stereotypical institutional environment.
When mechanical locks are in use on a ward, only staff are able to control the locking of patient doors due to the risk of self-harm or weaponisation created by metal keys.
Using the Lifeline key that already operates the door's vision panel and anti-barricade stop - no toolkit required.
Clinical staff recognised that our emergency toolkit was necessary for the previous version of our electronic lockset; ensuring they could gain access by mechanically overriding the lock and providing pull force advantage.
However, they asked for a lock that provided the same safety features but without a toolkit - which is why the mechanical override is now built-in.
Built-in emergency override ensures staff can overcome determined barricades in under 5 seconds.
Our integrated override provides all of the same safety features as our 5-way SOS lockset - but with just one pull of the emergency lever.
In line with the Care Quality Commission's (CQC) guidance on reducing restrictive practices, our EAC system empowers patients with the independence to lock and unlock their own bedroom doors, without compromising on safety.
