While MedEMS is renowned for its paramedic led secure patient transport solutions, we also offer an effective bed watch service. This is crucial for NHS-funded and private healthcare providers dealing with patients who are violent or otherwise a threat to themselves or others.
As a leading provider of secure bed watch solutions, we have much to offer our clients across the country. Here is what we can do for you:
As well as provided a first-class bed watch service, we can also ensure that any potentially dangerous patients under your care can be transferred in safety. We operate a secure patient transfer service for any patients suffering from mental health issues, including those who may be a danger to themselves or others.
We offer an end-to-end bed watch solution for NHS Trusts and private health care providers. Our trained security staff can provide one-on-one assistance for potentially violent or dangerous patients, or they can help to monitor an entire ward of patients. They keep detailed records of patient behaviour throughout their shifts, helping your medical staff to make appropriate treatment decisions.
All our bed watch personnel are fully licensed by the SIA and have years of relevant experience in the area of mental health. They are highly-trained in conflict management, safeguarding, and physical restraint. They treat your patients with care and respect, acting in a vital support role for members of your medical team.
There are many reasons to choose us for your secure bed watch needs. Here are some of the more common ones, based on extensive customer and patient feedback:
While our bed watch staff are security personnel rather than medical professionals, we see to it that they maintain our same high standards of customer care. MedEMS is registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) and we ensure that all our team – bed watch staff included – uphold the Fundamental Standards laid down by the Commission.
All our bed watch personnel are highly-trained security professionals with long years of experience in this field. They are fully licensed by the Security Industry Authority and are compliant with all their codes of conduct. With years of expertise under their belts, our bed watch staff provide staunch support for both the patient and your medical personnel.
Almost by definition, a patient may require a bed watch service any time of the day or night. Indeed, many need it on a round-the-clock basis. Here at MedEMS, we provide exactly that. Our fully licensed bed watch professionals operate in shifts for as long as you require their services, protecting the patient and others 24 hours a day.
We deliver essential bed watch solutions to medical facilities across England and Wales. This includes both private establishments and NHS-funded hospitals. Wherever your patient is based, we will have a bed watch specialist in their area. Our central control room handles the logistics, allowing you to relax, knowing a fully-trained bed watch professional is on their way.
