‘It’s cheap, easy to use and it works!’
‘Following a major security incident in the summer of 2003 we invested in The Little Green Button for our 44 computer operators including all Doctors, Nurses and attached clinical staff. This small floating green button offers security and peace of mind to everyone working at this practice administrative and clinical staff alike – currently our team consists of 10 doctors, 6 nurses, health visitors and other attached clinical staff including midwives etc. Since our major incident we have had occasion to use this in many genuine circumstances – patient collapses at the reception desk and even outside in the street – in the treatment room area and to summon help when a patient has become aggressive in the consulting room. It has been effective in 100% of cases. The tool, part of our overall strategy is respected and understood by the whole team and we wouldn’t be without it.’
‘Fortunately we have rarely had to use it but when needed it does work and gives a lot of reassurance to people.’
‘Whilst never used in anger the Little Green Button gives confidence and an easy way for GP’s and nurses should they need to call assistance in a medical or non medical emergency. The reception team appreciate the extra security it provides especially if they are alone in an evening with all the clinicians in their rooms. It has been triggered inadvertently on occasions and staff have always reacted positively and swiftly to offer assistance.’
‘We had relied on wall mounted panic buttons over the years, but as in most organisations, room use changes as does the layout of the room and if you’re lucky the number of rooms. We found we were in a situation where some rooms and staff had panic buttons, some didn’t and most of the staff didn’t know how to use them anyway. We heard about Wiggly-Amps from a salaried GP who had joined us, and immediately contacted them. The product is so simple to use, a little (or big if you want one) green button sitting happily on the desk top which can be clicked if there is any trouble. Every room has a computer and everyone uses it, so apart from making sure that you are near the computer it is accessible to everyone. The cost is extremely good at about £100’
‘We used to have a system where people had to physically pick up a chunky device to press an emergency button. This device was often under papers, stuck in a drawer, on a window ledge or under a desk. LGB gave us the perfect security tool. It is always there, we know someone will always be available to see and respond. It is not obvious to the patient what is being done, so it does not exacerbate the situation. It also allows a doctors to quietly knock and walk in under some pretext to get the threatened person out of the situation safely. Basically, it is perfect! Thank you for such a well thought out and useful, simple tool!!’
‘Overall we are quite happy with the product. It provides the level of security that we needed in our office and all staff understand how it works.’
‘We find the system very easy to use and it helps staff to feel at ease when consulting with clients particularly on a one to one basis knowing that help is just a click away when needed. I have to say that as yet we have not needed to use it in a “live” situation however, when we run a “test” as we do with all our alarm and security on a regular basis, it has worked very well with staff responding quickly.’
‘It’s easy to install, with simple interface and it’s definitely very helpful piece of software.’
‘The Little Green Button has filled in a security gap we had with our reception staff, who were physically isolated, with no one in close proximity to them. To address this concern, we installed the Little Green Button, which has allowed them a greater level of comfort where they can quietly summon assistance if needed. It worked well for our staff and we recommend this for others with similar situations.’
‘We have the LGB installed in every classroom. The teachers use it to request assistance from the Pastoral team instantly. It’s a doddle to install and configure and can be customised accordingly. The support offered by wiggly amps is second to none and they have all the answers to any issues/queries.’
