Protect patients, warn visitors,
help staff remain alert – everyone
must play their part!


WHAT IS IT? HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Patient Guard® System is an efficient visual warning device which can be used to clearly display which patient areas are under isolation. Flexible and easy to use, it can also highlight recent outbreaks, reinforce hand hygiene, and advise visitors regarding best practice.

This system consists of a comprehensive library of message cards which staff can change to visually broadcast the level of isolation within patient care areas. Staff choose the most appropriate message card and fix it to an unobtrusive rail-based display system, mounted on door frames, entranceways and passageways. Newly-emerging isolation areas can therefore be quickly highlighted to staff and visitors.


EASY TO USE

Our message cards, or inserts - printed on lightweight yet robust card - are colourful, eye-catching and quick to attract attention.

They can be readily disposed of following use, reducing cross-contamination. Cards are easy to store and carry, and can be installed using one hand.


COST-EFFECTIVE AND SIMPLE TO INSTALL

The Patient Guard® System, while elegant, has been designed for maximum visual impact using easy-to-use, cost-effective components. Installation is simple and swift, requiring minimal technical expertise and no special tools.


EASILY UNDERSTOOD

Having worked in infection control and signage for several decades, we understand that visitors are often anxious when visiting the hospital, and can feel overwhelmed by the extensive signage displayed within healthcare environments.

The Patient Guard® System's highly visual messaging is large and bright, and stands out from the crowd helping visitors and staff to absorb and respect its potentially lifesaving communication.


PART OF A FAMILY

The Patient Guard® System is part of Tagg Design Inc’s family of infection control communication products.

Since 2005, hospitals have been using our Tagg Clean-Hands® Sanitizing Stations and corresponding library of signage, templates, visual symbols and other communication products in entrance areas, healthcare lobbies and clinics.

The sanitizing stations make use of the same symbols as the Patient Guard® inserts and work together, flawlessly, to help achieve rapid message recognition, better compliance, and lower levels of infection spread.

Protect your patients, healthcare staff, long-term care residents and visitors with the Patient Guard® System.
