Think about the last time you were in a hospital, whether for yourself or a family member. There are so many sounds you hear when you’re walking through the hallways or in the patient rooms. One of those sounds is the sound of a nurse call system.
Nurse call systems are installed in healthcare facilities and senior housing to alert the nurses to the fact that they are needed in a room. If you’ve ever been to one of these facilities, you know how important a reliable system can be. It has a day-to-day impact on operations and the experience of patients. Many healthcare facilities and offices work with electricians to provide a custom built configuration to get the most out of a nurse call system.
Provide safety for patients
Many systems allow for patients to call the nurses straight from their bed. There are also smart beds that are equipped to send out alerts to the caregiver is something seems off.
Allow for efficient care for patients
There has been a great advancement in the technology aspect of healthcare. Nurse call systems have come a long way and now include innovations such as surveillance and staff locating. These elements help to improve a caregiver’s efficiency and workflow.
Also known by the name of call bell or call light systems, nurse call systems are the center of communication for an emergency situation. Nurse call systems are an integral part of any hospital or hospice. With that being said, they must be set up and installed properly to be reliable. Without these systems in place, many hospitals or hospices fail to provide the best treatment for their patients.
Many states require the systems to meet a strict set of codes in order to pass inspection. Every nurse call system must use UL® Listed components. Installing a nurse call system can become very complex. An electrician can provide the best recommendations for specific situations.
