The care giver is also able to establish exact location. Depending on the urgency and distance; a medical specialists can call counterparts in the nearby area for assistance as he/she finds the quickest way to the location. However, patients with infections or illnesses that require close monitoring are advised to stick near the care givers; it is not a movement restriction but a cautionary measure.
