Kingsway Group is excited to announce that it will be attending the Healthcare Estates exhibition in Manchester this year, showcasing its new Kosmos conscious monitoring system – its latest product release designed to help clinical and estate management teams increase safety and reduce risk in challenging healthcare settings.
As well as being able to meet the team, and view the company’s anti-ligature and anti-barricade complete door systems, stand visitors will be able to see the Kosmos system, which ‘works seamlessly’ with a Kingsway SENTRY alarmed complete door system – ‘whether it’s already in place, or a new installation’ – demonstrated.
Kingsway said: “Kosmos was founded on the back of talks with our partners about the continuing need to make healthcare environments increasingly safe given the challenges placed on wards by service-users. This new evolution of monitoring system provides a screen conveniently located in a nurse station or office, that incorporates a user-friendly geographic layout of the ward and an annunciation alarm, both audible and visible, making it easier to identify when a ligature attempt is taking place.
“Kosmos also provides crucial management information on all door opening and closings, alarm activations, and testing attempts, so a full audit trail can be gathered should it be required. Users can also identify patterns of behaviour on a ward, to help reduce the risk of ligature attempts and the cost of rooms becoming out of use.”
Kingsway Group is ‘a trusted provider of anti-ligature and anti-barricade complete door systems, secure vision panels, door hardware, and washroom items’, to NHS mental health Foundation Trusts, acute hospitals, and private providers across the UK, having completed over 2,300 projects with its partners. Managing director, Julian Hall, said: “Kingsway Group is proud to be a trusted partner in safety to so many Trusts and other UK healthcare providers. We look forward to catching up with existing and new partners in Manchester, and further demonstrating – through the Kosmos conscious monitoring system – how we continue to innovate to reduce risk in challenging settings and help increase safety for both frontline clinical staff and service-users”.
