Securitech Behavioral Health: Patient Safety
Securitech’s Behavioral Health door hardware addresses patient safety and security concerns in mental health environments. Securitech’s anti-ligature line of products focus on life safety: ask us about our double-acting hinge, single door alarm kits, over the door alarms, and ligature resistant levers for hospital patient room doors and single or multi-point deadlocking lock systems for seclusion/time out rooms. Our easy-to-operate behavioral safety hardware is designed to alert psychiatric facility staff to help protect patients from harms way.
Securitech has been active in Behavioral Healthcare for over 30 years. Recognizing the desperate need for ADA compliant ligature-resistant door locking solutions, a joint effort was initiated between Securitech, industry professionals, and the mental health community. Securitech’s patented ligature resistant hardware was reviewed by the VA National Center for Patient Safety Department and was quickly included in the VA’s Mental Health Environment of Care Checklist. Securitech’s ligature resistant hardware has also been included in the National Association of Psychiatric Health System’s Design Guide for the Built Environment of Behavioral Health Facilities and was the first ligature resistant lever in the Patient Safety Standards recommended by the New York State Office of Mental Health.
Thousands of devices have been successfully installed in VA medical centers, state psychiatric hospitals, and private facilities across the country. Throughout the years, Securitech has earned its reputation by continuing to develop customer-driven functions and unique solutions for the behavioral health community. The offerings laid out in this brochure present an overview – there are many more functions available. The best solutions always come from the customer and Securitech is your partner to make those solutions happen.
