Hospitals and Nursing Homes
for Hospitals and Nursing Homes
Healthcare centers, hospitals, and nursing homes can maximize their potential by installing a building automation system with a professional BMS supervisor. Automation makes it possible to minimize energy use, ensure resident’s comfort, and manage:
The result is a healthcare facility that is more efficient, sustainable in both operating costs and the environment, and which provides a high level of living/working comfort without unnecessary waste.
Rapid and Efficient Implementation of a Wide set of Functions for a Safe and Optimized Healthcare Facility
In a healthcare facility, it’s critical that everything works properly, that all functions are automated as much as possible (especially when there is a shortage of trained personnel), and that the building meets the highest standards of safety & security. All this is achieved with Duemmegi’s building automation system. Through a user-friendly interface, the system provides:
Smart management of artificial lighting with presence and brightness sensors (night/day dimming, inpatient ward, laboratories, offices, and surgeries. Also, with voice control).
Temperature control management (including integrated systems).
Automation of all indoor and outdoor sunscreens, shutters, and blinds. This ensures the proper comfort for residents while increasing the building’s energy efficiency and reducing waste.
Maximum reliability of technical systems.
Control and management of all calls (including emergency calls).
Medical gas control.
Electrical distribution system control and insulation control in surgeries, laboratories, and medical facilities with IT systems.
Integrated surgery unit management (control of mechanical, electrical, and specialized technical equipment for the safe and proper operation of the unit).
Air treatment system management and automatic management of air exchange. This is a very useful function in all environments and specifically in in-patient wards and surgeries to keep VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and CO2 levels in the air under control and ensure healthier environments.
Communication with fire and smoke detection systems.
Renewable energy management (photovoltaics and geothermal systems, etc.).
Personnel access management (locker rooms, pharmacy, laboratories). The BMS can limit access to restricted areas using badges, numeric keypads or QR codes.
Management of color therapy environments (for example delivery rooms).
Management of flood alarms and sensors in restrooms and utility rooms.
Doorway access control system (e.g., in facilities that accommodate Alzheimer’s patients, disabled or dependent persons, alarmed doors ensure everyone’s safety).
Installing a building automation system in a hospital or nursing home: some Reasons Why
Investing in a high-level and innovative system that can optimize all the functions of a building is a winning choice in terms of competitiveness. An automated healthcare facility certainly stands out from its competitors and, indeed, it can provide financial savings that can be appreciated by all stakeholders.
A healthcare structure with state-of-the-art facilities means investing in personnel and user safety. It helps automatically and systematically avoid potential malfunctions, shortages of primary and life-saving materials, and unmanaged emergency calls. This allows for easier and more optimized management of the entire complex.
The watchword in a building automation system for hospitals and nursing homes is “ease of use“. Duemmegi provides this with its modular and scalable systems that allow the installation of the strictly necessary automation only, so optimizing the project and saving costs. At the same time, all new functions can be implemented as needed, without the complexity of invasive physical intervention, high electromagnetic fields, or excessive costs.
The result is:
An energy-efficient facility, that can optimize the use, for example, of a photovoltaic system.
A building with optimized resource use. This can be achieved thanks to data from the energy monitoring system.
Reduced operating costs.
Low environmental impact.
