TITUSVILLE — Parrish Healthcare is using a new SafeCheck Walk Through Body Temperature Detector in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID. SafeCheck instantly reads the body temperature of the person walking through it and enables detection of fever that might indicate contagion from COVID-19 or other illnesses.

The SafeCheck detectors will help ensure the safety and well-being of our care partners and visitors. Reading temperatures manually is slow and potentially risky to the people taking the readings. Parrish Healthcare solves both of these problems by using SafeCheck detectors.

SafeCheck can screen 70 people per minute. A person being screened places his or her wrist, or forehead, two to three inches away from an infrared sensor. The device displays their temperature on an LED screen on top of the machine. If the temperature falls outside the normal range of 97 to 99 degrees Fahrenheit, the machine will automatically issue an audible and visual alert.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, Parrish Healthcare facilities implemented a number of enhanced safety protocols including temperature screenings. Installing the walk-thru devices provides a more efficient and healing experience for everyone entering our facilities,” said George Mikitarian, President/CEO, Parrish Medical Center.
