Protection, Compliance, Confidence – Oceania Group Healthcare
With vulnerable clients, large numbers of people coming and going, and 24-hour service, retirement villages and elder care facilities have unique security needs.
Oceania Group, running retirement villages, care homes, and hospitals all over the country, is no different. They need to be able to protect their elderly patients, let staff and visitors come and go, and meet their obligations to the Ministry of Health.
Since 2012, Oceania Group have relied on Select Alarms to install, maintain, and service alarm systems for 9 of their properties. As National Compliance Manager Derek Llewellyn explains, it’s a challenging job, but they trust Select to get it done.
“We remain confident that they are looking after our interests, which leaves us more time to focus on problem areas.”
Installation And Maintenance
When you manage a large number of properties, installing new systems and repairing the existing ones can be a huge job. That’s why it’s essential to have contractors you can trust to get the job done right and on time, every time.
That’s the service Select Alarms provides to Oceania Group. They’re in charge of installing new equipment and systems as needed, at any of the Oceania Group facilities in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Paeroa, Cambridge, Taupo, Tokoroa, Whitianga. This includes new alarm systems and cameras, access points, fences and gates, and even emergency lighting. They also provide maintenance services, testing, and repairs as needed.
As Derek explains, the management team are very pleased with Select Alarms, in terms of practical work, price, and customer service.
Because Oceania Group is a healthcare organisation, they’re obliged to comply with standards set by the Ministry of Health and other governing bodies, and undergo regular audits to ensure compliance. All the work Select Alarms does must meet these compliance obligations.
