Although the frequency of such scenarios is low, the impact can be immense. That is why forward-thinking facilities are investing in innovative solutions that minimise, or even eliminate, the impact of these events.
Fast, reliable communication is essential to delivering effective and efficient patient and resident care. You can ensure that this critical aspect of care and safety is maintained in instances of Nurse Call system failure or power outages with a simple and reliable back-up emergency system that’s ready to go when it’s needed.
Vitalcare’s emergency nurse call solution comes in a self-contained, rugged case — not much larger than a briefcase. Because the system is pre-configured, it can be set up quickly and easily in any location, Australia-wide.
Installation is simple. Wireless call points powered by internal batteries are fixed to walls or bed heads with double-sided tape. Alternatively, patients can wear neck pendants or wrist alarms.
Doctors, nurses and care staff are provided with pagers or can use their mobile phones to be alerted of nurse call activations.
The system also comes with 24/7 technical support to ensure connectivity and continuity of care.
