Brook Lane, western Maryland’s largest non-profit mental health system, has selected Commure Strongline as its staff duress system to keep employees safe from workplace violence. Commure Strongline, healthcare’s leading staff safety solution, will serve as a portable distress beacon across Brook Lane’s hospital, outpatient offices, and other facilities — empowering any staff member wearing the badge to summon nearby coworkers and security personnel for help at the first sign of duress.
By deploying Commure Strongline, Brook Lane will be the first hospital in the state of Maryland to implement a Bluetooth-based duress-alerting system to every employee to get them the help they need, when and where they need it. All employees — including clinical, educational, support, and administrative staff — will be protected with their own badge. “There is no better way to invest in your staff than to focus on a culture of safety for those who work hard every day to help others on their mental health journey of hope, healing and recovery,” said Jeffery D. O’Neal, CEO of Brook Lane. “Commure Strongline will help us achieve this goal.”Click here to read Brook Lane’s full press release
