In an ongoing response to the current coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Stein Assisted Living at the Wilf Campus for Senior Living, Somerset, has implemented the use of the Accushield Sign-in Kiosk to perform symptom screenings of staff and visitors alike upon entry into the building.
“The kiosks will track not only who is in the building and when, but will also aid in contact tracing relative to Covid-19,” says Wilf Campus president Bob Barry. Replacing sign-in sheets, the digital record of these occurrences will enable the facility to easily identify and contact those who were in the building at the time of possible exposure if necessary.
The kiosk works by compiling results from screening questions that include temperature, recent travel to coronavirus hot spots, and contact information. There is also a touchless thermometer integrated into the device that works by simply scanning the forehead of the user. If the screening and temperature reading are completed within the acceptable parameters, visitors may then take a photo and have a visitor’s badge printed from the kiosk.
The Wilf Campus has also installed the Accushield kiosks at its Education and Resource Center and Wilentz Senior Residence, the two other buildings on site.
