Nurse Call

Patients in hospitals and residents in retirement homes and retirement villages are amongst the most vulnerable people in society, requiring assistance for everything from going to the bathroom to dealing with a fall. Unfortunately nurses and other care givers can’t always be near them whenever they need help but thanks to Nurse Call, a specialist patient communication system, they don’t have to be.

How It Works

Nurse call buttons and cords are installed throughout your hospital, retirement village or residential home at places where patients are at their most vulnerable, such as beside their bed and in the bathroom. When the patient needs help with anything they simply activate the nurse call to request assistance. Once activated the nurse is alerted to the location of the patient on a monitor at the nurse’s station and through a light displayed above the entrance to the room. The patient can then quickly receive the care they need without any delays.
