Having nurse call systems in place is for compliance reasons is essential, but it’s not always enough. No matter the size of a healthcare facility, integrating nurse calls with alert functionality can make the system far more effective. Here are some reasons why.
Seamless Call Response
A nurse call system is only effective if it alerts the proper caregiver to the correct patient or resident room. Whether the nurse call system is hardwired or wireless, it can be integrated with routing technology so this can happen seamlessly with every call that comes in. Calls can be responded to more quickly, more accurately and more effectively when this integration is in place. The result is fewer escalating emergencies, which improves the caregiving profile of the entire facility.

Single Point Management
Utilizing multiple technologies for each of your nurse call needs creates an unnecessary burden that interferes with the efficiency of emergency management and routine care. What’s the alternative? With an integration manager built into the nurse call system, you have a single point to manage staffing, patient safety and maintenance. Single point management is the way to go for facilities that want less hassle for better healthcare services.
While it’s critical to display all nurse call events on the nurses’ master station monitors, modern integration technology makes it possible to also display events on single user devices. That means staff using smartphones, tablets and even pagers can receive event alerts to the devices they carry. An event monitor mobile app makes it possible to get these alerts anywhere on the premises. Most facilities that embrace the technology are grateful for the added integration, especially when nurse call events are serious emergencies.
These are just some of the ways that integrated alerts can enhance the quality of healthcare nurse call systems. Seattle facilities that are interested in implementing this integration should call Guardian Security for more information. We will be glad to answer your questions and demonstrate the technology to you.
