RADARSIGN™ CUSTOMER NEWS: The VA Healthcare System and Other Hospital Campuses Choose Driver Feedback Signs to Ensure Safety and Patient Comfort
ALPHARETTA, Ga., December 27, 2010—The VA healthcare system—the largest in the US, serving some 9.4 million people each year—is helping ensure the safety of patients, visitors and employees by installing radar driver feedback signs from Radarsign™ at seven locations.
Ensuring campus-wide safety for any medical facility requires a comprehensive traffic-calming plan that is considerate of the needs of pedestrians, drivers and, importantly, the mission-critical transportation requirements associated with ambulances and other rescue vehicles. Studies have proven that vertical traffic-calming measures—such as speed humps and speed tables—interfere with response times of emergency vehicles, with each speed hump costing ten seconds in response time. For elderly patients and those recovering from injury or surgery, traveling over humps can quite painful.
The VA healthcare system is one of a growing list of hospitals—that includes Forsyth Medical Center (NC), St. Anthony’s Hospital (CO), and Phoebe Putney Hospital (GA) as just three examples—that have made Radarsign the provider of choice.
