In the field of battle when a soldier is wounded and they yell for a medic, what comfort is felt when they arrive to ease their pain. Equally as important is the ability to push a button, and hearing the acknowledgement tone you know help is soon on the way. Just as fire alarm systems, nurse call systems need to work---period. Nurse call, along with the other life safety systems we deal with are understood to be of greatest concern.
Wired nurse call systems range from simple amplified lighting systems to complex, computer-driven animals. We carry the whole spectrum. One great advantage to some wired systems is the ability to have a two-way conversation with the patient. When a call is placed at member of the staff can use a telephone to open communications with the caller allowing quick assessment of
their need. Some systems give greater flexibility than less expensive models. Some amount of dancing between expectation and price will be needed. The good news is that we can work with you.
Wireless nurse call systems give an added level of freedom to patients and residents. Assisted living communities especially benefit from this technology since repeaters can be placed a great distance away allowing one system to monitor spacious apartment complexes. Hospitals and nursing homes also integrate this technology with hard-wired systems for the more mobile individuals, giving them security while they are on the go. While flexibility is achieved with wireless, batteries are also needed for the operation of pendants and other devices. Although they last for 3 years or more, this is a consideration
that must be made when deciding on a nurse call system.
Accessories exist for both types of nurse call systems. Printers can be attached to print reports of response time and call frequency. LCD displays can be added at hallway ends allowing nurses and assistants to view calls without having to run to the nurse station. Telephone and pager interfaces exist for quiet notification and two-way communications. Paging interfaces can announce over the paging system a pre-recorded message alerting all staff of a Code Blue situation in a certain area of the facility.
Whatever your need...we can get it done.
