Nurse Call Systems

What Is a Nurse Call System?

For nursing and health care facilities of all types and sizes, it’s essential that patients and residents have the ability to reach nursing staff in the event of an emergency. Critical communications have to be relayed efficiently, reliably, and in such a way as to enable an immediate response on the part of caregivers.

Today, nurse call technology has evolved into high tech, fully integrated systems with features like wireless capability and mobile phone integration. This expanded feature set allows for improved patient care. In order to be truly effective, however, these systems must also be easy to learn, easy to use, and highly reliable. They should also enable efficient, trackable workflows in order to streamline internal processes and ensure that patients and residents receive the care they need.

    How to Choose the Right Nurse Call System for Your Facility

    When choosing a nurse call system, it’s essential that the system’s features meet your facility’s needs. At the same time, it’s important to design a system that meets budgetary constraints, matching necessary features with your facility’s budget.

    Our audio-based emergency call systems allow for 2-way communication between patients and caregivers, while our tone-based systems allow patients to notify a caregiver when they’re in need of assistance. We also offer both wired and wireless nurse call systems, depending on your facility’s needs.

    When you choose Signal Technologies as your security and communications provider, our team of experts will work with your facility management to select the feature set best suited to your needs and budget.
