In a medical office, patients are usually examined and sometimes remove their clothing when they do so. It would be great to trust all medical professionals and people in general. But, that's in a perfect world. During an examination or procedure a patient may feel that he or she was handled inappropriately. This is a cause for concern because many times it is those same facilities or medical offices that have access to your information. It can be scary and one may feel all alone having no one to assist them with matters of abuse mental or physical. To be unable to discuss this type of situation or even inform an authority about it can cause emotional harm.
The Medical Safety App
The medical safety app is designed for those situations in mind whereby a patient feels he or she was intimidated or abused by a medical professional person. The medical safety app is all about you and your safety when you go to visit a medical doctor or facility. How does it work? Once you have downloaded the app, all you need to do to establish a log in is to use your name and cell phone number. Afterwards, you can create a patient profile with your home address and other contact information. Then just like a phone book you will be asked to enter and save the names, addresses and phone numbers of your physicians, hospitals ect. When all of this information is entered into the medical safety app, you are able to enter when your next appointment is, by selecting appointments. Which is great because the app will send you appointment reminders. You can either enter your appointment under the appointments tab or you can do it by category by selecting the doctor or medical facility. Once the appointment is entered and saved into the system. The appointment, you have entered once saved and selected will allow you to enter information pertaining to that appointment in the form of a complaint or comment about that particular days visit. This complaint or comment can also be sent by e-mail to your e-mail address or one can be created through the medical safety app. This complaint can be e-mailed to any authority responsible for medical professional conduct. The great thing about the medical safety app is that by pressing a button ans alarm can be sounded. Why is this important? I'm glad you asked- if you are in an exam room and are presented with hostile circumstances there is a panic button that you can discretely press that will shrill an alarm. This will not only record the time and date you pressed the alarm, but your location will be tracked. Once, that loud sound goes off and will not stop until you stop the alarm or keep it going so that the front desk workers, other physicians will go to see why the patient pressed the medical safety app alarm. I just love this already! If all is fine then everyone can continue working. If not, then aren't you glad that you had the medical safety app?
