Effective Workplace Safety for Healthcare & Homecare Workers
POM Safe is a one-touch safety device that can instantly connect you to the help you need when you need it most.
IT’S A DANGEROUS JOB…
As many as 61% of home care nurses have experienced some form of workplace violence.
Physical assaults per year. Incidents are, in general, under reported.
10% of visiting nurses feel unsafe. Nurses who feel safe at work deliver the highest-value health care.
Employees dealing with behavioral or psychiatric patients are 10 times more likely to be seriously assaulted.
3 Ways to Reduce
In the event of an emergency the POM system can quickly and efficiently get help to the user’s location. Unlike 911 or other hotlines the POM transmits vital location and profile information along with a two-way call that is established between the POM device and the dispatcher.
POM can help before a situation becomes a serious danger or emergency. Use the POM’s many customizable features to get the right help for your situation. You can send an auto text or start an auto call that also shares your location. Quietly send a fake phone call to your phone to excuse yourself from an uncomfortable situation.
Simply carrying the POM on your key-chain or other visible location acts as a deterrent against unwanted attention or attack. Assaults are much less likely to occur while carrying a panic button that can summon help instantly.

Keep Your People Safely Connected & More
The POM system is the perfect tool to help monitor and support your staff in the field and in the workplace. The enhanced peace of mind is an invaluable asset to your company.
Prepare Your Staff for Uncomfortable and Dangerous Situations by Providing a Personal Safety Device.
Nurses can be faced with difficult situations when entering people’s’ homes, traveling in “rough neighborhoods”, and dealing with patients that have mental or behavioral health conditions.
Make Sure Your Service is Delivered with Appointment Tracking.
They visit multiple homes a day and tracking time at each location is difficult, which is important for safety and compliance reasons.
For our home care staff, the patients’ homes are their workplaces. With thousands of patient visits each year, staff may sometimes find themselves in volatile situations both inside the home or when visiting unfamiliar or unsafe areas, threatening their sense of security. Staff may encounter unstable patients or family members, potentially dangerous pets, or observe signs of abuse or domestic violence in the home. Environmental hazards, such as unsafe or unsanitary conditions, may also require emergency aid. With the POM security device, we’re taking our staff safety program to the next level by embracing rapid response technology that will connect them to the critical aid they need when they need it.
