Street fair in VA presents Philips elder remote monitoring system
At a street fair hosted by the Virginia Hospital Center today (see drama blog), Dutch technology company Philips was offering an information kit on another home alert device called Philips Lifeline. The link is here.
There is a questionnaire and self-assessment “Is it time for a medical alert service”? The survey starts with the question as to whether you are alone for several days, especially at night.
Again, in some states, in some situations, it actually can constitute legal neglect if people in certain situations of disability are left a home alone. Not all people can comply with the “requirement” to wear a monitor medial alert button.
