Safety and Security
Patient safety is a top priority at VNS. By offering you healthcare solutions like the
Philips Lifeline Medical Alert Service there’s more than one way to keep you or your loved
one safe and secure at home.
Consider either the Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) or Philips new enhanced service option –
AutoAlert; both provide greater peace of mind.
Personal Emergency Response System (PERS): This easy-to-use medical alert service is designed to reduce the risks associated with living alone. In the event of a fall or emergency, help is available at the push of a button. You’ll be connected to a trained associate who can send help quickly, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This system is ideal:
- In the event of a fall
- If a high risk exists due to a history of falls
- If problems with gait or balance is evident
- If you are recovering from hip surgery
- If heart disease or other chronic medical conditions are known
- If you use a mobility device
Lifeline with AutoAlert: A call for help is automatically placed if a fall is detected through the easy-to-wear AutoAlert Pendant’s multiple sensors – even if you can’t push the button, should you become disoriented, immobilized, or unconscious.
The Intelligent Alarm feature is designed to detect when you can’t get up from a fall on your own. Emergency services will be dispatched immediately if there is no response.
Lifeline is the only medical alert service provider that integrates this capability into a waterproof pendant-style Help Button with a long lasting 18-month battery life, for greater peace of mind.
