Nurse call systems can utilize a variety of devices to allow a patient to communicate with their care providers. These devices can range in style from dome lights, speakers, or push buttons just to name a few.
You can activate a bed call using a few technical options, including manual button activation or bed monitoring devices. These allow patients to alert their nurses by simply activating a push-button. They also act as an alternative for monitoring systems to alert nurses about potentially abnormal conditions without the need for manual intervention.
Water-resistant pull cords in bath and shower stations activate when pulled. Installing these stations in bathrooms provides patients with privacy. While also allowing you to speak to the resident in case of a fall or emergency.
These solutions utilize wireless transmitters such as personal pendants or wireless wall stations to send alerts to caregivers or emergency responders.
Wandering Patient (RFID)
Assigning patients an RFID tag to wear on their persons via a wristband or pendant device enables the detection of tagged patients as they approach defined areas such as exit doors, stairwells, and elevators. Once the system detects their presence, it triggers alarms and secures doors.
