Perimeter monitoring of a nursing home | 'Las Retamas' (Madrid)


Located in the municipality of Alcorcón, a few kilometres from Madrid, 'Las Retamas' is one of the largest hospital and reception centres in the Spanish capital.

The structure has 220 bedstwo day centres capable of accommodating 60 patientsan infirmary and a 20-bed centre accommodating patients suffering from dementia, behavioural disorders and at risk of absconding.

200 health workers work in the facility every day.


The facility is spread over 3 floors and is divided into 4 macro areas, with a total of 23 access doors to the building. The other issues are the size of the perimeter of the centre and the request by the facility to integrate the passage controlwithout changing the nurse call system already used in the facility.


Our solution:

Thanks to the Neat bed access and presence control system, it was possible to equip the centre with a quick and easy system to installIt was easy to use, scalable and did not hinder the existing nurse call system in any way.

The D-POS system  consists of: sensors installed in the presence of access doors to the facility, wristband supplied to the facility guest and Trex alarm signal reception device.

Once the guest has crossed the threshold, the wristband sends an alarm signal (sound or vibration) on the display of the Trex receiver which alerts the operator.

Each bracelet worn by the user is customised through a identification code which appears on the display of the operator's receiver so that it identifies the user who is attempting to exit and immediately goes to the floor where the gate has been crossed, to prevent the user from leaving the facility.

Used by health and social workers, the Trex device is able to receive all alarms which are generated by the devices worn by users and to identify them on the display, ensuring that the operator can identify the point from which the alarm is transmitted, thus enabling him to intervene promptly.

The system ensures the mobility of the facility's guestscommunicating emergency events directly on the radio receiver that the operator can carry with him at all times.

Bed presence control band

The bed check band of Neat is able to detect the patient leaving their bed and from that moment, start a timer within which they can manage their needs. The timer, which is easily programmable, adapts to the patient's condition, and on its expiry in the event of non-return, warns of a possible emergency situation.

The system ensures operator mobilitycommunicating emergency events directly to the Trex receiver.
